Stainless Coil from Rolled Steel Products in Los Angeles
Rolled Steel Products carries 430 stainless coil. Type 430 is ductile, has good forming characteristic and is readily fabricated by such operations as bending, pressing, drawing and heading. Its tendency to work harden is much less than that of the nickel-bearing 300 series stainless steel. Type 430 stainless coil does not have as good corrosion resisting properties as the chromium nickel steels. However, it is suitable for interior architectural and decorative household appliances trim as well as automotive body molding. Cold rolled Type 430 has an attractive bright finish which can be maintained with reasonable care and periodic cleaning. Type 430 stainless coil is by far the most popular of all straight chromium stainless steels. It is the general purpose alloy of the ferritic class. This type contains approximately 17 percent chromium and is often referred as 17 chrome stainless. The higher chromium content imparts improved resistance of Type 430 is slightly less than carbon steel, but its thermal conductivity is one half that of carbon steel. Chromium stainless steel is magnetic.
