430F quality material is a stainless steel quality containing sulfur. Thanks to this sulfur, which contains 1.4105, ie 430F quality material, it has a very good workability value and it is known to be one of the best machinable rust-free materials by passing 303 quality materials for processing between stainless materials.
This material is similar to the quality of 430 (1.4016) and we can name it as a sulfur supplemented version into 430 quality. On the other hand, the sulfur content of the material already reduces the corrosion resistance of the material. The corrosion resistance of the quality material of 430F (1.4105) is not very good.
Grading Quality Characteristics
The 430F quality material is not a corrosion resistant stainless steel grade. 430F (1.4105) quality material is not very resistant to corrosion due to the low or none of the elements that will increase the high level of sulfur and other corrosion resistance it contains.
The first reason for the production of 430F quality material is the good machinability of the material and the mechanical values in this quality material are not in the forefront and the 430F quality material has low mechanical values.
Vulnerability to be beaten:
This material is not good for beating and is not recommended for this feature.
This high quality sulfur-containing material is not a suitable stainless steel grade for welding, and is certainly not recommended for welding.
430F (1.4105) stainless steel is the highest quality Machinability of Palaz Metal quality and its machinability is better than 303 quality and this stainless steel quality can be processed almost as easily as a automaton steel.
430F quality material is generally used in transportation vehicles, electronic equipment, food and food production facilities and decoration.

Summary of Quality Characteristics
430F (1.4105) quality stainless steels, ferretik stainless are in the group.
430F (1.4105) quality stainless material is also named as X6CrMoS17 according to EN class.
This quality pulls out the material.
Corrosion resistance is low and corrosion may occur in corrosive environments.
It contains 430F (1.4105) sulfur, so its workability is better than 430.
