430 is a low-carbon chromium ferritic stainless steel. This steel has good corrosion resistance in mildly corrosive environments and good resistance to oxidation at elevated temperatures. In the annealed condition the steel is ductile, does not harden excessively during cold work and can be formed using a large variety of roll forming or mild stretch- bending operations.
430 has limited weldability and should not be used in the as-welded condition for dynamic or impact loaded structures. Being a ferritic material, 430 has the potential to suffer brittle fracture at sub-zero temperatures. It should not be used in cryogenic applications.
