Stainless Steel 409 Foil is a ferritic alloy grade material used in the automotive industry. It contains 11-14% chromium, 0.5% Ti and a small amount of nickel. This alloy offers excellent corrosion resistance and good oxidation and formability properties due to its higher chromium content than other grades like 409L. It also provides superior heat durability compared to standard-grade stainless steel, making it ideal for applications in exhaust systems and other auto parts that may be exposed to high temperatures.
Stainless Steel 409 Foil is a corrosion-resistant alloy commonly used in automotive exhaust systems. It offers superior heat, rust, and oxidation resistance due to its high chromium content. Additionally, benefits include its low cost and easy formability while maintaining strength at elevated temperatures and excellent weldability due to its non-hardenable character. Combined with these properties, it is an ideal material for hot water tanks and applications that require food contact certification, such as trays for baking or cooking.
