Chemical Composition (17-4 PH)
17-4 PH is the first steel product from the family of improved machinability, precipitation hardened stainless steels.
Its properties are
This stainless steel is unique in that it not only offers excellent corrosion resistance, comparable to that of type 1.4301/1.4307 (304/304L) austenitic stainless steels, but it also offers a wide range of mechanical properties once treated.
Its performance - based on its metallurgical condition - means that it can meet demands for high levels of tensile strength as well as being suitable for applications that require high impact strength.
It is suitable for numerous and varied applications in fields as diverse as:
