  • Material

    17-7PH, Type 631, UNS S17700, 17Cr-7Ni

  • Overview

    17-7PH is achromium-nickel-aluminumsemi-austenitic stainless steel which is austenitic in the annealed condition, but martensitic in the hardened condition. 17-7PH provides high strength and hardness, excellent fatigue properties, good corrosion resistance and minimum distortion upon heat treatment. It is easily formed in the annealed condition, then hardened to high strength levels by simple heat treatments.

  • Characteristics

    17-7PH may be formed in a soft austenitic condition and hardened to a high strength level by low temperature heat treatments. The low temperature allows minimum distortion compared to conventional quench and temper hardening processes. In addition to material produced by the standard refining procedures, material which has been vacuum arc or electroslag remelted is available for further increase in resistance to fatigue, for those applications subject to cyclic stresses.

  • Application

    17-7PH has been found application in aerospace, surgical partsandmany spring type applications requiring high strength.

  • Chemical Composition (wt% as per AMS 5568)

















  • Corrosion Resistance

    Tests have shown that the corrosion resistance of 17-7PHis comparable to that of Type 304 stainless steel in most media. In general, the corrosion resistance of 17-7PHis superior to that of the hardenable 400 series stainless steels.Its intergranular corrosion may be a problem if the material is heated between 800°F (427°C) and 1650°F (899°C) or cooled slowly through that range.
