17-4 PH is a martensitic precipitation age-hardening stainless steel with high strength and hardness, and good corrosion resistance. 17-4 PH is used in a variety of applications including medical instruments, chemical processing equipment, gears, nuclear reactor components, and jet engine parts.
The material is typically supplied from the mill in the annealed condition, however, 17-4 PH is often heat treated.
Common heat treatment conditions and approximate mechanical properties for 17-4 PH.
17-4 PH has good machinability. In the annealed condition 17-4 PH machines similarly to 304 and the machinability improves as the age-hardening temperature increases.
In most environments 17-4 PH corrosion resistance is superior to that of 400 series hardenable stainless steels and approaches corrosion resistant levels of 302 and 304.
