430 stainless steel sheet is a ferritic stainless steel sheet with chromium content of about 16%-18%, which is a low alloy steel. It has excellent corrosion resistance, toughness and mechanical strength, and can be used in a range of different products such as kitchen utensils, furniture, construction materials, automotive parts, etc.
430 stainless steel has much better thermal conductivity than austenite. Compared with austenite, its thermal growth coefficient is much greater. 430 stainless steel sheet is easy to form and weld during thermal processing, has a smooth surface, is easy to clean, and is relatively inexpensive, so it is widely used in a number of mass-produced products. However, it is relatively weak in corrosion resistance and cannot be used in strong acid and alkali environments for long periods of time, and is prone to deformation at high temperatures.
430F is added to lathes, nuts and bolts, mainly into this tip of the metal operation. 430LX adds Ti or Nb to 430 metal to reduce C material and improve machinability and weldability. It is mainly used in hot water tanks, hot water distribution systems and sanitary products, household appliances, bicycle flywheels, etc.

Production Process of 430 Stainless Steel Sheets&Plates
Procurement of high-quality 430 stainless steel raw materials, the appearance of raw materials, dimensions, chemical composition, and other inspections.
Hot Rolling Processing
The stainless steel slab is heated to the appropriate temperature and then hot rolled to form the required plate thickness.
The hot rolled sheet is annealed to eliminate internal stress and improve the processing properties and physical properties of the sheet.
Surface Brightening Treatment
The surface of the 430 stainless steel sheets is made smoother and flatter by polishing and other surface treatments.
Cold Rolling Process
The hot rolled sheet is cold rolled to achieve the required size and surface quality.
The surface is removed from impurities such as oxides and iron oxides using pickling solution, while protecting the surface from further contamination.
Features of 430 Stainless Steel Sheets&Plates
It shows good corrosion resistance in general atmospheric environments, freshwater, and steam.
It is a magnetic material with a certain degree of magnetism and can be magnetized.
It has good weldability and welding performance, and can be welded by conventional welding methods.
Good processing performance, can be cut, molding and processing, and other process processing.
It has a certain degree of heat resistance and is not easily deformed and oxidized at high temperatures.
It has high strength and hardness, and a high surface finish.
Long service life, with good wear resistance and durability.
Compared to other stainless steel materials, 430 stainless steel is relatively low in price, so it is widely used in some high-volume applications.
Application of 430 Stainless Steel Sheets&Plates
430 stainless steel sheet is commonly used in outdoor construction materials, such as metal roofing, wall panels, window and door frames, railings, flooring, etc. because it has good resistance to weathering and corrosion resistance.
430 stainless steel sheet is widely used in automotive exhaust systems and other automotive parts, such as cylinder heads, exhaust pipes, mufflers, fuel filters, etc., because of its heat and oxidation resistance properties.
430 stainless steel plate is corrosion-resistant and not easily contaminated, so it is often used to make kitchen equipment and appliances, such as hoods, stoves, sinks, dining tables, etc.
430 stainless steel plate is often used in chemical storage tanks, pipes, fittings, etc., because it has the advantages of corrosion resistance, high-temperature resistance, wear resistance, etc.
430 stainless steel plate is commonly used in the production of electronic components shells, terminal blocks, battery cells, etc. because it has electrical insulation properties, corrosion resistance, and high-temperature stability properties.
430 stainless steel plate and 304 stainless steel plate have the following differences:
Chemical composition: 430 stainless steel contains a higher percentage of chromium and iron, while 304 stainless steel contains a higher percentage of nickel and chromium. This makes 430 stainless steel more resistant to corrosion than 304 stainless steel, but more susceptible to wear and scratches.
Strength and hardness: 430 stainless steel is harder and more flexible than 304 stainless steel, but more brittle than 304 stainless steel.
Magnetism: 430 stainless steel is magnetic, while 304 stainless steel is non-magnetic.
Machinability: Because 430 stainless steel is harder, it typically requires greater cutting forces and slower speeds to machine, while 304 stainless steel is easier to machine.
Applications: Since 430 stainless steel has better corrosion resistance and lower cost, it is usually used in the manufacture of products such as household appliances, automotive exhausts and kitchen utensils. 304 stainless steel, on the other hand, is widely used in the manufacture of high-end products such as high-end furniture, buildings, food processing equipment and medical devices.
There are several differences between 430 stainless steel plate and 316 stainless steel plate as follows:
Chemical composition: 430 stainless steel contains about 17% chromium and about 0.12% carbon, while 316 stainless steel contains 16-18% chromium, 10-14% nickel and 2-3% molybdenum.
Corrosion resistance: 316 stainless steel is more resistant to corrosion than 430 stainless steel, especially in high temperature and acidic environments.
Strength and hardness: 316 stainless steel is stronger and harder than 430 stainless steel.
Processability: 430 stainless steel is easier to process and form than 316 stainless steel because of its lower hardness.
Price: 430 stainless steel is cheaper than 316 stainless steel.
Based on these differences, 430 stainless steel is typically used for general price-sensitive applications, such as kitchen appliances, automotive exhausts, etc. 316 stainless steel is typically used for more demanding applications. While 316 stainless steel is usually used in more demanding applications such as chemical equipment, medical equipment, marine equipment, etc.
430 stainless steel sheet is not normally considered suitable for food contact. Although its chemical composition does not pose an immediate hazard to humans, it can lead to bacterial growth and contamination of food due to the possible presence of tiny rust spots and other impurities on its surface. Therefore, in applications involving contact with food, it is recommended to use stainless steel materials that meet food-grade standards, such as 304 or 316 stainless steel.
The service life of 430 stainless steel plate depends on a variety of factors, such as the use environment, operation methods, maintenance and other factors. In general, the service life of 430 stainless steel plate is relatively short, usually about 5-10 years, but the specific life expectancy needs to be assessed on a case-by-case basis. In the process of use, regular inspection, cleaning and maintenance can extend the service life of 430 stainless steel plate.
To extend the service life of 430 stainless steel sheet, consider the following measures:
Avoid using sharp tools and chemicals to cause scratches and corrosion on 430 stainless steel plate.
Regular cleaning and maintenance of 430 stainless steel sheet, especially in wet or corrosive environments, should be given more attention.
Avoid prolonged exposure of 430 stainless steel sheet to water or moisture, especially in the presence of chloride ions or other corrosive substances.
Choose an appropriate installation location to avoid prolonged exposure of 430 stainless steel sheet to the sun or exposure to high temperatures or strong ultraviolet light.
If machining or cutting is required, it is recommended to use appropriate tools and methods to avoid damage and deformation to the 430 stainless steel sheet.
