K30ED – 1.4016

Our KARA range. A variant of our K30 grade, this 17% Chromium Ferritic Stainless Steel offers increased forming and drawing capabilities.

Main features

Good resistance to both corrosion (in moderately aggressive environments) and high-temperature oxidation, enhanced cold formability, an attractive surface appearance upon delivery without additional finishing. K30ED also has good resistance to high temperature oxidation resistance. K30ED grade serves as an alternative 17% Chromium grade when the K30 variant is at the limits of its forming and drawing capabilities. Thanks to its improved forming properties, our clients can reduce their non-quality and internal rejection rates when K30ED is used on parts that are difficult to form. Producing complex formed parts in regular thicknesses enables more creativity and evolution in terms of design. It is particularly beneficial in strengthening the structure with the use of tighter radii, as well as reducing the thickness of parts that have a similar or identical geometry to those of K30. Can replace the K39M grade in more complex parts if a stabilised grade is not required for welding purposes.
