430 Stainless Steel

430 Stainless Steel

430-grade stainless steel is usually used in any application where aesthetic appearance is more concerned than strength. It has a tensile strength of 65ksi (minimum) and 30ksi for yield strength (minimum). 430 belongs to the ferritic grade family and is considered one of the best options for cost-conscious buyers.
