430F SS availability

430F SS availability

430F SS availability

I'm working on a new solenoid project that requires parts made from 430F material (1-1/4" and 5/8" round). Does anyone know where I can get some? My purchasing people as well as outiside machining houses quoting on this project have no quoted due to this material not being available. I need some urgent help!!!.


RE: 430F SS availability

The only people that I have ever dealt with on this grade are Cartech.  Of course they were 16 weeks late shipping, but that is another story.

Corrosion never sleeps, but it can be managed.

Thanks for reply Rd400guy

RE: 430F SS availability

Fry Steel is a very good one we used on a regular basis from here in Florida.

I was using my old favorites list and for some reason I thought they had disappeared, like a lot of others, as I kept getting different indexes or lists.  Works ok from your link and now from my address line and new favorites.
Thanks for the link, its like I found an old friend.

RE: 430F SS availability

Besides Carpenter, the other steel producers we have used for 430F(R) are Ugine (Bedini) and Valbruna.  If you only need a little then you are better off dealing with the distributors.
