430 stainless steel is a ferritic, straight chromium, non-hardenable grade, combining good corrosion resistance and formability characteristics with useful mechanical properties. Its ability to resist nitric acid attack permits its use in specific chemical applications but automotive trim and appliance components represent its largest fields of application. These properties for 430 are specified for the flat rolled products (plate, sheet, and coil) in ASTM A240/A240M. Similar but not necessarily identical properties are specified for other products such as forgings and bars in their respective specifications. Properties of Grade 430F are specified for bars in ASTM A582.
