EOS StainlessSteel GP1 is stainless steel. Its chemical composition corresponds to US classification 17-4, European 1.4542 and German X5CrNiCuNb16-4. Steel including alloying elements like Cr (15 – 17.5 wt-%) Ni (3 – 5 wt-%) Cu (3 – 5 wt-%) Mn (max. 1 wt-%) Si (max. 1 wt-%) Mo (max. 0.5 wt-%) Nb (0.15 – 0.45 wt-%) C (max. 0.07 wt-%)
EOS StainlessSteel GP1 is pre-alloyed stainless steel in fine powder form. Its composition corresponds to US classification 17-4 and European 1.4542. This kind of steel is characterized by having good corrosion resistance and mechanical properties, especially excellent ductility in laser processed state, and is widely used in a variety of engineering applications.This material is ideal for many part-building applications (DirectPart) such as functional metal prototypes, small series products, individualised products or spare parts.
– engineering applications including functional prototypes, small series products, individualised products or spare parts.
– parts requiring high corrosion resistance, sterilisability, etc.
– parts requiring particularly high toughness and ductility
