Stainless Steel GP1 - stainless steel for industrial applications

StainlessSteel GP1 is a stainless steel. Its chemical composition corresponds to US clas-sification 17-4, European 1.4542 and German X5CrNiCuNb16-4. This kind of steel is characterized by having good 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.

  • Good mechanical properties
  • Excellent ductility


  • Engineering applications including functional prototypes
  • Small series products
  • Individualised products or spare parts
  • Parts requiring particularly high strength and hardness
