GENERAL PROPERTIES

Type 17-4 PH stainless steel is the most widely used of all of the precipitation-hardening stainless steels. Its valuable combination of properties gives designers opportunities to add reliability to their products while simplifying fabrication and often reducing costs. Type 17-4 PH is a martensitic precipitation-hardening stainless steel that provides an outstanding combination of high strength, good corrosion resistance, and good mechanical properties at temperatures up to 316°C (600°F). Its unique combination of properties make this alloy an effective solution to many design and production problems.

RESISTANCE TO CORROSION

Type 17-4 PH stainless steel has excellent resistance. It withstands corrosive attack better than any of the standard hardenable stainless steels and is comparable to type 304 in most media. This has been tested in a wide variety of corrosive conditions in the petrochemical, petroleum, paper, dairy, and food processing industries, and in applications such as boat shafting.

WELDING

Grade 17-4 stainless steel can be welded using common fusion and resistance welding methods. Oxyacetylene welding method is not preferred for welding this alloy.

HEAT TREATMENT

Grade 17-4 stainless steel is soaked at 1038°C (1900°F) for 30 min and cooled below 16°C (60°F) for complete martensite transformation in the condition A. The condition A material is treated at 482°C (900°F) for 1 h followed by cooling. Solution treated material is soaked for 4 h at specific temperature in H925, H1025, H1075, H1100, and H1150 conditions followed by cooling in air.

Solution treated material is soaked at 760°C (1400°F) for 2 h in the H1150M condition followed by cooling. It is again heated at 620°C (1150°F) for 4 hours followed by cooling.
