Near wrought strength

3D printed 17-4 PH Stainless Steel exceeds MIM standards and reaches 95% wrought strength under equal heat treatment.

Working with 17-4 PH Stainless Steel

17-4 PH Stainless Steel is best heat treated to maximize strength, hardness or toughness. H900 condition, heating your part to 900F (482C) for four hours, yields the strongest and hardest possible parts. H1150 condition (1150F instead of 900F) can also be used to maximize toughness at the expense of ultimate tensile strength.

Compatible with our Metal X system.
