17/4PH Fasteners

17/4PH Fasteners
01/04/2014

Grade 17-4 PH (1.4542) is one of the most common precipitation hardening stainless grades used for the manufacture of our Special Fasteners and our Non-Standard Socket Screws.

17-4 PH has good corrosion resistance whilst also offering high strength and good impact toughness, vital properties in many special bolting applications.

17/4PH is often specified where the following characteristics are required:

• Good corrosion resistance (slightly less than a 304 stainless steel) • High hardness and high strength • Controlled balance of mechanical properties by ageing (precipitation hardening) • Improved toughness compared to 431 stainless and critically at sub-zero temperatures in the softer conditions • Magnetic • Thermal expansion comparable to carbon steel • Easier to weld than martensitic stainless grades like 420 and 431

17-4 PH develops its high strength from the precipitation of copper particles in its martensitic matrix. It comes in various conditions denoted by H plus the ageing temperature in Fahrenheit (°F), for example H900, H1025 etc.

The higher the ageing temperature, the lower the strength becomes and the higher the ductility and toughness develop. The minimum 0.2% Proof Stress values can vary from 520 MPa to 1170 MPa depending on the condition.

CONDITION A Soak at 1900 F (1038 C) for 30 minutes and cool below 60 F (16 C) for complete martensite transformation.

CONDITION H950 Treat Condition A material at 900 F(482 C) for 1 hour, air cool.

CONDITION H925, H1025, H1075, H1100, H1150 Soak solution treated material for 4 hours at specified temperature, air cool.

CONDITION H1150M Soak solution treated material at 1400 F (760 C) for 2 hours, air cool, then re-heat to 1150 F (620 C) for 4 hours and air cool.

The combination of high strength and good corrosion resistance finds special fasteners used in: Drive shafts, gears, hydraulic rams, valve stems, load cells, tensioning systems, quick release pins, fasteners, aerospace, medical devices, food processing, conveying equipment and fall arrest systems
