430 LNb

type 
Stabilized stainless steel welding wire for ferritic steels
applications 
430LNb is developed and designed for the Automotive industry and used for production of exhaust systems and catalytic converters.. The wire should be used when there is a need for good resistance to corrosion and thermal fatigue.
Properties 

Good corrosion and temperature resistance and excellent weldability. Due to the risk of grain growth in the melted zone, welding wire with a diameter larger then 1,2 mm is to be avoided
