An extremely strong precipitation hardened stainless steel
- Well suited for high strength applications
- Up to 4x stronger than 316 stainless steel
- Maintains its mechanical strength up to 600°F
- 17-4PH Chemistry & Specifications
- ASTM F593, Grade 630 fasteners
- 17-4PH Datasheet
17-4 PH fasteners 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 fastener's yield strength is up over 4 times greater. When compared to Duplex 2205 fasteners, the yield strength of 17-4 PH can be up to 2-½ times greater.
17-4 fasteners are available in 8 different aged (precipitation hardened) conditions offering a variety of mechanical properties (see below). In addition, we also offer 17-4PH fasteners per ASTM F593 Grade 630 which ensures specific tensile and yield strengths.

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.
