The 17-4 stainless steel grade is an age-hardening martensitic alloy that combines high corrosion resistance and strength. Unlike conventional martensitic steels, it weldable by all standard methods, and achieves hardening with simple low-temperature treatment over a short period of time. This product is a cost-effective replacement for high strength carbon steels as well as other stainless grades as it has a high strength and resistant to corrosion.

- Corrosion Resistance: 17-4 stainless stands up excellently in a range of atmospheric environments even when exposed to corrosive elements.
- Heat Resistance: Continuous use of 17-4 above 590⁰C is not recommended.
- Temperature above can cause corrosive cracking. 550°C is the optimum tempering temperature in chloride media.
- Very high yield strength up to 1100-1300 MPa (160-190 ksi) can be achieved.
The 17-4 can be applied to a range of applications including a variety of accessories and equipment such as gate valves, fasteners, food processing machinery, and aircraft structures.
