Stainless Steel, Ferritic1.4016 - 430 Stainless Steel

Ferritic 17% chromium stainless steel.

Stainless steel type 1.4016 is also commonly known as grade 430.

Type 430 stainless steel combines good corrosion resistance with good formability and ductility. It is a ferritic, non-hardenable plain chromium stainless steel with excellent finish quality.

Grade 430 also has excellent resistance to nitric attack, which makes it well suited to use in chemical applications. The most popular applications for 430 are in domestic appliances and decorative trim.

Property data given in this document is typical for bar and flat rolled products covered by EN standards. ASTM, EN or other standards may cover products sold. It is reasonable to expect specifications in these standards to be similar but not necessarily identical to those given in this datasheet.
