About The Wire:
These are soft wires. They are easy to handle and cut.
SS430 is used for weaving mesh due to its magnetic properties. All of the wires in this range are also used in our mesh products.
All forms of stainless steel are long lasting in the correct conditions. This wire should last over 25 years given the correct environment and treatment.
These spools are small and are designed to suit every pocket.
Dimensions of Wire:
Diameter - 0.355mm (225 Micron - 27 AWG)
Length - Various Options
Weight - Various Options
Spool Type - Large plastic bobbin.
Stainless steel grade 430 is a non-hardenable steel containing straight chromium, and belongs to the ferritic group of steels.
All ferritic grades, such as stainless steel grade 430, have excellent stress corrosion cracking resistance. Grade 430 has good corrosion resistance to numerous substances, such as certain organic acids and nitric acid.
Stainless steel grade 430 is capable of resisting oxidation up to 870°C (1598°F) in intermittent usage, and up to 815°C (1499°F) in continuous usage. At room temperature, it has the tendency to become brittle, especially when it has been heated for a long time in the 400-600°C (752-1112°F) range. This issue can be overcome with annealing.
Solution annealing can be performed by heating stainless steel grade 430 to 815 - 845°C (1499-1553°F). Then it has to be slow furnace cooled to 600°C (1112°F) and followed by air-cooling in a quick manner - as slow cooling between 540 and 400°C (1004 and 752°F) tends to cause embrittlement.
For sub-critical annealing, heating should be performed to 760-815°C (1400-1499°F), followed by air-cooling or water quenching.
This stainless steel cannot be hardened by thermal treatment.
