Ferritic soft magnetic 430FR stainless steel round bar for solenoid
Free Machining Ferritic stainless steel (400 Series) 430FR is a
ferritic stainless steel designed
for soft magnetic components operating in corrosive environments.
The 17.00% - 18.00% chromium makes corrosion resistance similar to
The increased silicon content in this alloy allows increased
mag-netic characteristics over 430F
in the annealed condition.
430FR has exhibited superior and consistent performance due to its
higher electrical resistivity.
The alloy was developed for applica-tions that require a weak
coercive magnetic force
(Hc =1.88 – 3.00 Oe [150 – 240 A/m]) as needed in solenoid valves.
Our controlled processing allows magnetic properties to be
typically superior to industry norms.
430FR has an increased hardness over 430F, due to the increased
silicon levels, reducing the
deformation that occurs during the oscillation impacts that occur
in AC and DC solenoid valves.
430FR is chemically balanced to provide superior ma-chinability and
deliver heat to heat consistency
that is unsur-passed in the industry. Once an optimum machining
setup has been established,
machinists can take advantage of increased machining efficiency
rates (run ―lights-out‖ production).
