Stainless steel grade 1.4016 is currently the most used ferritic stainless steel grade in the world.
This medium chromium steel corresponds to the industry standard of AISI 430.
A chromium content of 16 % gives better corrosion resistance and the grade is used in wide range of applications, mostly indoors.
Grade DIN 1.4016 is a general 16% Cr ferritic stainless steel, feasible for many applications including catering, appliances and indoor applications. Typical applications include washing machine drums, dishwashers, sinks, countertops, and range hoods.
Grade W.-Nr. 1.4016 is typically used with a polished or brushed finish or with a bright finishes like 2B or bright annealed BA (2R).
