Type 430 is a low carbon ferritic stainless steel which, in mildly corrosive environments or atmospheric exposures, has corrosion resistance approaching that of some nickel-bearing stainless steels. This alloy is oxidation resistant at elevated temperatures. Type 430 is ductile, does not work harden readily, and can be formed using a variety of roll forming or mild stretch bending operations as well as the more common drawing and bending processes.
Hardness: B75 C B83 Rockwell
