Ameralloy Steel is a trusted 430 Stainless Steel supplier. 430 Stainless is one of the most remarkable metals from the 400 series of steel. With noteworthy corrosion resistance and other properties related to the 400 series, the 430 truly stands apart as its own, maintaining high demand and usability.
430 is best known for its corrosion resistance, but it also has great heat resistance, heat treatment, and welding capabilities.
Corrosion Resistance – 430 is ranked as a ferritic grade of stainless, and like other stainless, ferritic means that it has high corrosion resistance. This makes it excellent for working with organic and nitric acids because its pitting and crevice defense makes it stand up to corrosive environments.
Heat Resistance – 430 can resist oxidation up to 1575 degrees with intermittent and 1475 with continuous usage. It tends to become brittle when heated for long periods, but the problem is resolved with annealing.
Heat Treatment and Welding – Between 1500 and 1550 degrees, annealing can be done to stainless, followed by furnace cooling to 1100 degrees again, followed by air-cooling in rapid succession. Thermal treating can not harden stainless, but for below critical annealing, heating can be performed between 1400 and 1500 degrees.
