430 Stainless Steel
Alloy 430 Stainless Steel is a somewhat corrosion resistant stainless steel alloy
with properties that make it a good choice for use outdoors in situations where
corrosive agents are not present.
430 stainless is a Chrome-Steel alloy, and can be magnetized. 430 stainless is a
good material for automotive, industrial MRO, and other applications where
corrosion resistance is not critical. It is a less expensive alternative to the 3
00-series stainlesses in applications where cost is a significant factor and the
environment is mild.
430 stainless clamps are commonly available with zinc chromate plated screws,
which further reduces their overall corrosion resistance, while at the same time
reducing their cost.
