174 Stainless Steel

174 Stainless Steel

174 stainless steel is equipped with corrosion resistance and high strength for highly stressed and stringent environment.

174 Stainless Steel

17-4 PH stainless steel is a precipitation hardening type of stainless steel that is popular in a variety of applications where corrosion resistance and high strength are required. It can go through heat-treating to develop its excellent hardness and strength, and it can provide toughness in both welds and base metals. This round bar exhibits excellent physical and mechanical properties of high strength, corrosion resistance, and hardness. 

Their high strength is often maintained to 600°F or 316°C. Mechanical properties in 17-4 round bar stocks are optimized through heat treatment. This stainless steel grade cannot withstand at very high temperatures above 572°F (300°C) or even at very low temperatures. 

It can also have adequate resistance to stringent environments like diluted acids or salts and atmospheric corrosion where corrosion resistance is highly required. Also, a 17-4 round bar can withstand corrosive attacks better than other standard hardenable steels. 

Uses of 174 Stainless Steel

This grade is known to provide a very outstanding combination of good corrosion resistance, mechanical properties, and high strength at high temperatures. Low-temperature heat treatments also minimize the distortion and scaling of these bars. A lot of standard heat treatments are also now available, making 17-4 round bar grades fit a wide variety of industrial applications:

  • Aerospace applications (turbines blades, etc.)
  • Oil and petrochemicals
  • Food industry
  • Chemical processing equipment
  • Nuclear waste casks
  • Pulp and paper industry
  • Mechanical components
  • General metalworking

Reasons to Buy 174 stainless steel

  • High strength and good corrosion resistance
  • Toughness similar to that of martensitic steels
  • Easy to machine, weld, and form
  • Resistant to pitting, crevice corrosion, and stress-corrosion cracking
  • Ideal for use in the food industry
