17-4 PH Stainless Steel
17-4 PH stainless steel is a precipitation hardened stainless steel that provides high strength and hardness, excellent fatigue properties, good corrosion resistance, good formability, and minimum distortion upon heat treatment. In high-heat treated conditions, 17-4 PH stainless steel possesses excellent mechanical properties.
The alloy provides valuable property combinations parcularly well suited for aerospace applications. This special alloy also provides benefits for other applications requiring high strength and good corrosion resistance - with excellent properties at temperatures up to 600° F.
Precision Steel Warehouse carries 17-4 PH Stainless Steel in Condition A and Condition C. 17-4 Stainless Steel requires 3 steps in heat treating including austenite conditioning, cooling to transform the austenite to martensite, and precipitation hardening (for Condition TH & RH).

- Variety of springs and washers
- Aerospace parts
- Heat exchangers
- Power boilers
- High strength/ high temperature conditions
- Chemical processing equipment
The minimum order for PSW coil products is $400.
