1.0430 X52


It is very high ductile in the normalized or annealed condition and often subjected to severe cold reduction. Whatever the carbon content increases the cold formability decreases.Therefore, this steel is best suited for production of stampings. It’s Weldability and brazing results is excellent and Machinability is poor.
