17-4PH Stainless Steel

PDF datasheet

17-4PH stainless steel stockholders and suppliers, delivering to the whole of the UK. West Yorkshire Steel are suppliers of 17-4PH stainless steel round bar and flat bar. 17-4PH is a corrosion resistant grade which is soft and ductile in the solution annealed condition. Medium to high strength, good toughness and strength is obtained by the appropriate ageing treatment. As a martensitic precipitation hardening stainless it is characterised by high tensile strength and high yield strength obtained by solution annealing, followed by a single or double low temperature age hardening treatment. 17-4PH has corrosive properties comparable to 304 austenitic stainless steel in many environments.

Flat Diameter

Applications

Commonly used in industries such as offshore, marine, food, paper mills, oil field and aerospace. 17-4PH is used for components such as fasteners, couplings, screws, bushings, studs, fittings, valve stems, roller, wear rings.


Forging

Heat slowly and uniformly to 1180-1200ºC. Do not forge below 1010ºC. Hold at temperature for one hour prior to forging the component. Cool in air to room temperature. Forged components require solution annealing before any further heat treatment.


Corrosion Resistance

17-4PH stainless has very good corrosion resistance properties. Corrosion tests in service have shown good results in all aged conditions. With better corrosion resistance to standard hardenable stainless grades such as 431, 420 and 410. 17-4PH has corrosion resistance comparable to 304 stainless specification.


Welding

17-4PH requires similar arc and resistance welding processes to those used on standard specifications of stainless steel. Welding up to 100mm thick can be carried out without the requirement of pre heating due to its low hardness. We recommend you contact your welding consumables supplier who should provide you full assistance and information on welding 17-4PH stainless steel.


Machining

Similar in machining characteristics to 304 and 410 stainless steel specifications. Condition H900 has high hardness and strength which is the most difficult to machine and the machining of this is recommended to be carried out at 60% of the rate which is used for Condition A.


Nitriding

For increase resistance to surface wear, with a slight reduction in corrosion resistance, 17-4PH can be nitrided. When nitrided at 540ºC an approximate hardness of 64-67 HRc is achievable, with a surface hardness depth of up to 0.15mm. The steel maintains a high core strength.


Solution Treatment Typical Properties

17-4PH is commonly supplied in the solution treated condition (Condition A). Heat treated at different temperatures will offer a wide range of properties. (We also hold stock in H1150+H1150).

Heat Treatment

Heat treatment temperatures, including rate of heating, cooling and soaking times will vary due to factors such as the shape and size of each 17-4 PH steel component. Other considerations during the heat treatment process include the type of furnace, quenching medium and work piece transfer facilities. Please consult your heat treatment provider for full guidance on heat treatment of 17-4PH stainless steel.


Certification

Stainless steel grade 17-4 PH is available with BS EN 10204 3.1 mill certificate, please request when placing any orders.


Quality Assured Supply

17-4 PH stainless is supplied in accordance with our ISO 9001 : 2008 registration.
