An extremely strong precipitation hardened stainless steel17-4 PH socket head cap screw

17-4 PH socket 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 socket head cap screws yield strength is up over 4 times greater. When compared to Duplex 2205 socket head cap screws, the yield strength of 17-4 PH can be up to 2-½ times greater.

17-4 socket head cap screws are available in 8 different aged (precipitation hardened) conditions offering a variety of mechanical properties (see below).

17-4 PH Socket Head Cap Screw Features and Benefits

When it comes to 17-4 PH socket head cap screws, it’s all about clearance. These screws are the best choice for applications with limited installation access or clearance. Yet if you have an application with a lot of debris, you may want to select a 17-4 PH hex head bolt or hex head cap screw, as they don’t have a socket drive which could get clogged.

Advantages:

  • Ideal for applications with limited access as they require very little clearance around the fastener.
  • Socket head cap screws can be used in locations where externally wrenched fasteners aren't desirable.
  • Weight reduction on application as 17-4 PH socket head cap screws are smaller – being that the cylindrical heads of socket screws need less space than hex heads and require no additional wrench space.
  • Also known for safety, reliability and economy.
