Magnetic Steel Equivalent to ASTM 1015
I would like to know what grade of magnetic stainless steel can be substituted for ASTM 1015 material. Right now we are using copper and 1015 steel in a brazed form(brazed at the point of contact)..but we would like to change it 4XX grade of magnetic steels to adapt for the applicability.
Could you please advise us with which grade we can substitute?
Thanks.. kind regards .,Rajeswari Bommaraji

You want to use 430 grade ferritic stainless steel. It is an 18% chromium, low carbon grade commonly used in welded solenoid applications. Since you are brazing, you should also make sure that you don't use 430F, the free machining variant. The additional sulfur in the 430F can cause problems when brazing (porosity, lack of adhesion).
