Description

17-4 PH is a martensitic precipitation hardening stainless steel with additions of copper (Cu), niobium (Nb) and tantalum (Ta). The grade combines high strength and hardness values with moderate corrosion resistance. Different heat treatment temperatures can optimize mechanical properties, e.g. yield strength at 1100 – 1300MPa. Our stock material is double aged at 1150°F – defined as DH1150. Age hardening is can also be performed at 480°C to 620°C in a one-step process, where the lowest temperature gives the highest strength. To achieve good toughness at low temperatures, precipitation-hardening temperatures below 550°C are not recommended.
