Stainless Steel 17-4PH

  • Precipitation hardening steels are widely used in engineering applications, which require corrosion resistance and strength.
  • StainlessSteel 17-4PH can be machined, shot-peened and polished in as-built or heat treated states.
  • Solution annealing together with ageing treatment are necessary in order to achieve proper hardness and mechanical properties (ASTM A564 – 13). Due to the layerwise building method, the parts have a certain anisotropy which can be eased by solution annealing
