Description

17-7 PH is a precipitation-hardening stainless steel that provides high strength and hardness, excellent fatigue properties, good corrosion resistance, good formability, and minimum distortion upon heat treatment. It is easily formed in the annealed condition, then hardened to high strength levels by simple heat treatments to Conditions RH 950 and TH 1050. The exceptionally high strength of Condition CH 900 offers many advantages where limited ductility and workability are permissible. Corrosion resistance in Conditions TH 1050 and RH 950 is generally superior to that of standard hardenable chromium stainless steels such as Types 410, 420 and 431. Corrosion resistance in Condition CH 900 approaches that of Type 304 in most environments.
