Stainless steel 1.4016 430

Everything you need to know about ferritic chrome stainless steel X6CR17, 1.4016 430, AISI 430, H17, according to EN 10088-1

What is Grade 1.4016 430 Stainless Steel?

Grade 1.4016 430 stainless steel, similar to 1.4512, is a ferritic stainless steel. This type of steel has good corrosion resistance, good formability and good ductility. 1.4016 430 is a simple chrome stainless steel that cannot be hardened.

Grade 1.4016 430 stainless steel has the following properties:

  1. Good corrosion resistance
  2. Resistant to nitrogen attacks
  3. Not suitable for welding

Why use stainless steel EN 1.4016 430?

The key point is that stainless steel 1.4016 430 belongs to the inexpensive category of stainless steels. And it is resistant to corrosive environments and even some chemicals in low concentrations.

Due to its resistance to acids, water, steam and alcohol contained in food, it is particularly suitable for the production of food and household products. Its nitric acid resistance makes it suitable for use in applications.

Additionally, the ferritic nature of Grade 1.4016 430 stainless steel makes it resistant to the effects of stress corrosion cracking, a form of corrosion to which most conventional austenitic stainless steels are susceptible.

What is the chemical composition of stainless steel 1.4016 430?

The chemical composition of stainless steel 1.4016 430 is:

1.4016 430 steel chemical element % present
