AISI 430FSe (S43023) Stainless Steel

AISI 430FSe stainless steel is a ferritic stainless steel formulated for primary forming into wrought products. Cited properties are appropriate for the annealed condition. 430FSe is the AISI designation for this material. S43023 is the UNS number.

It has a moderately low embodied energy among the wrought ferritic stainless steels in the database.

The graph bars on the material properties cards below compare AISI 430FSe stainless steel to: wrought ferritic stainless steels (top), all iron alloys (middle), and the entire database (bottom). A full bar means this is the highest value in the relevant set. A half-full bar means it's 50% of the highest, and so on.

Alloy Composition

Among wrought stainless steels, the composition of AISI 430FSe stainless steel is notable for containing a comparatively high amount of chromium (Cr). Chromium is the defining alloying element of stainless steel. Higher chromium content imparts additional corrosion resistance.

Iron (Fe) 79.5 to 84
Chromium (Cr) 16 to 18
Manganese (Mn) 0 to 1.3
Silicon (Si) 0 to 1.0
Carbon (C) 0 to 0.12
Phosphorus (P) 0 to 0.060
Sulfur (S) 0 to 0.060
