Title: Process for treating weldments

Abstract

The tensile ducttility and impact strength of weldments of nickel-based and stainless steel alloys are improved to that of the unaffected base metal by subjecting the weldments to an elevated temperature at an isostatic pressure for a period of time sufficient to render the material in the weld more homogeneous.
