AISI 430 stainless steel balls are an economical alternative to 302/304 for corrosive environments and conditions. Magnetic properties offer advantages in assembly of 430 products.


Stainless steel balls offer good resistance to mild atmospheric conditions and provide superior resistance at elevated temperatures compared to 302/304 or 316 materials. All balls of this alloy are passivated.

Corrosion Resistance

430 stainless steel balls are generally resistant to steam, dairy products, nitric acid and many petroleum products and organic materials.


Annealed – Rockwell B 75-95 measured on parallel flats.

Ball Sizes

Available in sizes from 1.5mm to 50.8mm in grades 100 through 1000. Cosmetic grade balls are readily available.
