17.4 and 15.5 PH - MT

Is it possible to carry out MT on 17.4 PH and 15.5 PH grades?
After solution heat treatment and ageing treatment only?
Thank you.

Ermanno,
entrambi gli acciai sono magnetizzabili anche se sono noti per avere permeabilità più bassa.
è preferibile lo stato completamente trattato.
È possibile che si evidenzino indicazioni magnetiche dovute a fasi metallurgiche diverse (eg delta ferrite).
è comunque indispensabile seguire le procedure approvate e utilizzare QQI o simili per verificare l'adeguatezza del campo magnetico

Yes it is possible to carry out MT on these steels.

Their micro structure consists of basically Martensitic phase, in heat treated condition.

Even after precipitation hardening, their micro structures predominantly consists of Martensite, which is ferromagnetic.

As such both steels can be subjected to MT.

Best wishes
