The Speciality Metals Company is one of the leading suppliers of 430 stainless steel magnetic plate in the United Kingdom.
With outstanding resistance to corrosion and a commendable tensile strength, this stainless steel plate has become a preferred choice for a multitude of applications. The manufacturing process involves passing the steel sheet through specialized rollers, allowing for varied dimensions ranging from 0.5mm to 3mm.
Its versatility is evident as it finds usage in sectors like textiles, aerospace, transportation, architecture, and chemicals. Common applications include industrial equipment, food processing tools, cutlery, cookware, stoves, tabletops, surgical instruments, and construction materials. Its attributes make it ideal for manufacturing items like sinks and splashbacks, showcasing its adaptability.
At its core, what sets the 430 stainless steel apart is its magnetic property, a result of its iron content and ferritic crystal structure. In contrast, while austenitic stainless steel grade 304 isn’t inherently magnetic, it can attain magnetism after undergoing cold work processes. On the other hand, Grade 316 remains non-magnetic.
In terms of performance, this stainless steel plate showcases commendable bendability, superior tensile strength, excellent corrosion resistance, and good machinability. It also possesses good attributes for cold working and weldability, though its heat treatment capability is limited. When seeking a durable, versatile, and reliable stainless steel solution, the 0.5mm 430 Grade from Speciality Metals emerges as a frontrunner.
Sheet stainless steel is also available in mild steel and aluminium.
Speciality Metals is known to be the United Kingdom’s best up-and-coming small-quantity metal company.

UK industry trusts 430 stainless sheets due to its great corrosion resistance, reaction to heat and tensile strength.
Do produce these panels, stainless steel sheet is passed through special rollers during the manufacturing process. Stainless steel sheets can be produced in different dimensions due to their unique manufacturing process. We stock 0.5mm all the way up to 3mm.
Because stainless steel sheet is available in a variety of dimensions, it can be utilized in a variety of household items and installations. Consequently, they may be of use in the textiles industry, aerospace, transportation, architecture and chemicals.
For steel to be magnetic, it must contain iron and have either a martensitic or ferritic crystal structure. Magnetic alloys must contain iron. A martensitic or ferritic crystal structure must be present in the alloy
There is a magnetic property to ferritic stainless steel grade 430. Austenitic stainless steel grade 304 does not exhibit magnetic properties, but it may become magnetic after being cold worked (bending, deforming). Grade 316 austenitic stainless steel is not magnetic
430 grade stainless steel, being a ferritic steel alloy, has a relatively lower maximum temperature resistance compared to other stainless steel grades. It can typically withstand temperatures up to around 150-200°C (302-392°F). Beyond this range, the material may experience a loss of mechanical properties and corrosion resistance, making it less suitable for high-temperature applications. For elevated temperature requirements, other stainless steel grades, such as austenitic stainless steels, should be considered.
Compared to other stainless steel grades, 430 grade stainless steel has both advantages and limitations. As a ferritic steel alloy, it offers good corrosion resistance in mildly corrosive environments. However, it has lower corrosion resistance compared to austenitic stainless steel grades like 304 and 316. Additionally, 430 grade stainless steel is magnetic, making it suitable for certain applications where magnetism is required. On the positive side, 430 grade stainless steel is more cost-effective and provides better thermal conductivity than austenitic grades. It is commonly used in applications such as kitchen appliances, automotive trim, and decorative components where moderate corrosion resistance and an attractive appearance are essential. For more demanding corrosion-resistant applications, particularly in aggressive environments, higher-grade stainless steel options should be considered.
The 0.5mm stainless steel plate of 430 grade finds various applications due to its specific characteristics. Its main uses include kitchen appliances such as stove backsplashes and cooking utensils, where its moderate corrosion resistance and attractive appearance are valuable. The 0.5mm thickness is suitable for decorative components like trims and accents in architectural settings. It is also utilized in automotive applications, such as decorative trim and exhaust system components. Additionally, this thin gauge of 430 grade stainless steel may find use in roofing and cladding projects, providing a durable and aesthetically pleasing solution. However, for load-bearing or heavy-duty applications, thicker grades or other stainless steel types may be more appropriate.
