An extremely strong precipitation hardened stainless steel
- Well suited for high strength applciaitons
- Up to 4x stronger than 316 stainless steel
- Maintains its mechanical strength up to 600°F
- 17-4PH Chemistry & Specifications
- ASTM F593 Gr 630
- ASTM A564 Gr 630
- 17-4PH button head cap screw features and benefits
- 17-4PH Datasheet
17-4 PH button head cap screws are made from a precipitation hardened stainless steel most known for its exceptional strength and its ability to maintain its mechanical properties to 600°F. Compared to 316 stainless steel, 17-4 PH screws yield strength is up over 4 times greater. When compared to Duplex 2205 screws, the yield strength of 17-4 PH can be up to 2-½ times greater.
17-4 button head cap screws are available in 8 different aged (precipitation hardened) conditions offering a variety of mechanical properties (see below).

17-4 PH Screw Types: 12 Point Screws, Button Head Cap Screws, Flat Head Screws, Hex Cap Screws, Pan Head Screws, Set Screws, Socket Head Cap Screws, Tamper Resistant Security Screws, Torx Screws, Vented Screws
17-4PH button head cap screws combine the similar shape of a pan head with the driver of a socket head. The socket driver is ideal for low clearance applications that require a large area clamping face. Compared to a standard socket head cap screw, 17-4PH button heads have a lower and wider profile. This can be useful when the clamping material is too thin to counter-bore.
- Wide bearing surface for clamping
- Low profile head

ASTM F593, Grade 630
This specification covers seven groups of stainless steel alloys, with ASTM F593, Grade 630 applying 17-4PH. ASTM F593 Grade 630 covers the requirements for 17-4PH stainless steel bolts, hex cap screws, and studs sized 0.25 to 1.50 inches, inclusive, in nominal diameter. It is intended for common use and for service applications requiring general corrosion resistance.
ASTM A564 GR 630
This specification covers bars and shapes (such as fasteners) of age hardened stainless steels such as 17-4PH. It includes hot-finished or cold-finished fasteners that are produced by hot rolling, extruding, or forging. Grade 630 shall be furnished in the solution-annealed or or age-hardened condition.
