Type 17-7PH® Precipitation Hardening Alloy is a semi-austenitic stainless steel which is austenitic in the annealed condition, but martensitic in the hardened condition. Type 17-7PH® provides high strength and hardness, excellent fatigue properties, good corrosion resistance and minimum distortion upon heat treatment. It is easily formed in the annealed condition, then hardened to high strength levels by simple heat treatments to Conditions RH 950 and TH 1050. The exceptionally high strength of Condition CH 900 offers many advantages where limited ductility and workability are permissible. In its heat treated condition, this alloy provides exceptional mechanical properties at temperatures up to 900 °F (482 °C).

Additional Properties 

Corrosion Resistance

Refer to NACE (National Association of Corrosion Engineers) for recommendations. 


# 1 - Hot rolled annealed and descaled. It is available in strip, foil and ribbon. It is used for applications where a smooth decorative finish is not required. 
# 2D - Dull finish produced by cold rolling, annealing and descaling. Used for deep drawn parts and those parts that need to retain lubricants in the forming process. 
# 2B - Smooth finish produced by cold rolling, annealing and descaling. A light cold rolling pass is added after anneal with polished rolls giving it a brighter finish than 2D. 
#BA- Bright annealed cold rolled and bright annealed 
#CBA- Course bright annealed cold rolled matte finish and bright anneal 
#2 - Cold Rolled 
# 2BA- Smooth finish produced by cold rolling and bright annealing. A light pass using highly polished rolls produces a glossy finish. A 2BA finish may be used for lightly formed applications where a glossy finish is desired in the formed part. 
Polished - Various grit finish for specific polish finished requirements. 

* Not all finishes are available for all alloys - Contact Ulbrich Sales for more information.

Wire Finishes

XC - Extra clean bright annealed or bright annealed and cold rolled Grease - Ultra-bright finish (for decorative applications) 
Soap - Soap is not removed from tempered wire to act as a lubricant. 

* Contact Ulbrich Wire for custom wire finishes.


Type 17-?PH® can be hardened by: 
Heat treatment from "Condition A" (RH950 or TH1050)
Cold rolling: Condition 1/2 C, 3/4 C, C 
Heat treatment of Condition C (CH900)
