Stainless Steel AISI 430

Data sheet
DIN EN 10088-3
Grade 1.4016

The material 1.4016 / AISI 430 is a magnetisable ferritic stainless steel that is suitable for forging and cold forming. Due to its high chromium content of 16-18 %, this stainless steel grade is more corrosion resistant (especially against stress corrosion cracking) than a comparable material with a lower chromium content. Please note that the material 1.4016 / AISI 430 can only be used for welding to a limited extent. The processing possibilities include cold upsetting and bending.
