Stainless Steel 17-4 PH Machined Parts
A Guide to 17-4 PH CNC Milled & Turned Parts
What is 17-4 PH?
17-4 PH is a precipitation hardening martensitic stainless steel. It is an American aerospace grade that contains 4% copper. It can be supplied in the annealed condition (condition A - although it should not be used in the annealed condition) or heat treated.
Heat treated conditions:
- Condition H900 (900°F)
- Condition H925 (925°F)
- Condition H1025 (1025°F)
- Condition H1075 (1075°F)
- Condition H1100 (1100°F)
- Condition H1150 (1150°F)
Main Attributes of 17-4 PH:
- High tensile strength
- High yield strength
- Excellent hardness
- Good corrosion resistance - on par with the more readily available stainless 304
- Outstanding wear resistance
- Good mechanical properties up to 316°C
- Good welding characteristics

17-4 PH Machinability
Stainless steel 17-4 PH has good machinability in the annealed condition - similar to that of stainless 304. Machining does become more difficult after hardening heat treatment.
Carbide or high speed steel tools should be used along with standard lubrication.
