It's a standard problem with Ni base superalloys. The volume contraction on
precipitation leads to stress's that can cause cracks, usually at grain
boundaries. Minimize the solutioned area in the HAZ, if possible a soft
compliant filler, sometimes overaging helps other times solutioned depends
on the precipitation kinetics of the alloy, heat input and speed.
