During service at elevated temperatures extensive formation of particles can take place that can have a dramatic influence on mechanical properties. Precipitation of sigma-phase and M23C6-carbides have been studied both experimentally and with thermodynamic modelling for 25Cr20Ni austenitic stainless steels (AISI 310) at 800 degrees C for up to 5000 h. Previous work has demonstrated that the modelling could describe the nucleation and growth satisfactory. After long term ageing the particles form bands in the microstructure. In the present paper the influence of these bands on ductility and toughness at room temperature is analysed. For this purpose previously developed models for ductility and toughness are utilised. Model values for banded and non-banded microstructures have been generated for casts of 310 in fine and coarse grained conditions with 0.04 and 0.12%N The model values show that in the coarse grained condition, no reduction in ductility and toughness can be expected in the banded microstructure. In the fine grained condition a modest reduction is predicted.
