17-4PH – Precipitation Hardening Steel

17-4PH is a widely used age-hardening steel that has a great combination of hardness, high strength, and high resistance to corrosion.

17-4PH or 17-4 Precipitation Hardening is a chromium-copper precipitation hardening steel that is used for applications and environments which require corrosion resistance and high strength. This stainless steel grade has excellent quality factors such as hardness, high strength, and corrosion resistance. To manipulate good strength and toughness by the temperature range within the heat treating process.

17-4PH Stainless Steel Round Bars

Advance Grindings is able to heat treat 17-4PH to H900, H925, H1025, H1050, H1150

This stainless steel PH grade is a versatile precipitation-hardening steel that is readily weldable, machinable, and formable. However, a solution treated condition is not applicable for 17-4PH steels. Its fabrication techniques are quite similar to those established for regular stainless steel grades. 17-4PH forges easily and has exceptional welding characteristics. What makes this grade applicable to a vast range of uses is the combination of good mechanical and processing properties that play an advantagous role in many industries.

Advance Grinding Services stocks 17-4 PH stainless steel round bars which are used where high resistance and high strength are required. They are also perfect for applications requiring high resistance to galling, high fatigue strength, and resistance to seizing and stress corrosion. 17-4PH is suitable for intricately manufactured parts which require extensive welding and machining, or where there exists a problem like distortion in conventional heat treatment. 17-4PH corrosion resistance is superior to that straight chromium grades like 416. Its surface finish and an aging heat treatment can affect corrosion resistant properties.
