Stainless steel grade 17-4PH - 1.4542

Used in our SMART BLOCK PIN range.

This stainless steel is unique as it not only provides with an excellent corrosion resistance, comparable to that of type 1.4301/1.4307 (304/304L) austenitic stainless steels, but it also offers a wide range of mechanical properties once treated.

Its performance – based on its metallurgical conditions – means that it can meet demands for high levels of tensile strength as well as being suitable for applications that require high impact strength.

This metal can be used in various applications such as:

•Marine craft and structures (propeller shafts, fittings).

•Food processing (handling and transfer equipment).

•Energy production/ Power plants

•The automotive industry and the construction sector.
