Abstract:The microstructural changes, precipitation behaviour, and mechanical properties of typical austenitic stainless steels (304 H, 316 H, 321 H, 347 H, and Tempaloy A–1) have been examined after long-term aging. The steels were aged statically in the temperature range 600–800°C for up to 50000 h. The microstructural changes were observed by optical and transmission electron microscopy, and the extracted residue was identified using X-ray analysis. Time–temperature precipitation diagrams were made for each steel. The amount of -phase was measured in samples aged at 700°C. The hardness and impact-value changes, and the tensile properties of aged samples were measured.
