436 Stainless Steel

Overview: 436 Stainless Steel

SS 436 is a type of ferritic stainless steel that is particularly popular in the automotive industry, especially for applications such as trim and exhaust systems. By adding molybdenum (0.75%~1.25%) to 430 stainless steel, we obtain 434 stainless steel, which boasts improved corrosion resistance. Further enhancing 434 stainless steel with the addition of columbium (niobium) (5C≤Nb≤0.80) results in 436 stainless steel. This Nb-stabilized variant of type 434 is specifically designed to reduce the occurrence of “roping” or “ridging” during stretch forming processes.

436 Stainless Steel Features

The inclusion of molybdenum in ss 436 significantly enhances its corrosion resistance compared to standard 430 ferritic stainless steel. This makes 436 an ideal choice for environments where increased durability is essential. Additionally, ss 436 is easily drawn and formed, making it suitable for a variety of hot-forming processes. Although it may exhibit slight ridging during forming operations, the presence of columbium helps to minimize this effect. In its annealed state, ss 436 has a slightly higher yield strength than 430, which means that stronger tooling and greater power are required for forming.

  • Automobile Trim: ss 436 is widely used in automotive trim due to its excellent corrosion resistance and formability, providing both aesthetic and functional benefits to vehicle exteriors.
  • Automobile Exhaust Systems: Its enhanced resistance to high temperatures and corrosive environments makes ss 436 ideal for automobile exhaust systems, ensuring longevity and performance.
  • Stretch Formed Aerospace Components: The material’s ability to be drawn and formed, coupled with its high yield strength, makes it suitable for stretch forming processes in the aerospace industry, where precision and durability are critical.

How To Pack SS 436 Sheet & Coil

In GHT, all of our stainless steel coils are packaged as per international standard to prevent any possible damage or loss. By default, for quantity less than 1 whole compete coil (our MOQ is 5 tons), we will use woven plastic bag to cover SS coils and then fix them upon wooden pallet for further protection. We can also package the SS coils as per your special requirement, though this can incur extra cost.

In GHT, all of our stainless steel sheets are packaged as per international standard to prevent any possible damage or loss. By default, we will use brown paper to cover SS sheets and then bundle them together onto wooden pallets. At times, upon some customers’ requests, we will also apply reinforced package with extra metal straps fixed on the four corners, though this can incur extra cost. For enhanced customer experience, we also accept customized package as per your requests.

436 Stainless Steel FAQs
