The microstructure and mechanical properties of materials produced by Wide Gap Brazing (WGB) and Laser Beam (LBW) cladding with different blends of Mar M247 and Amdry DF-3 brazing powders were studied. It was shown that LBW Mar M247 based materials comprised of 0.6 to 1 wt. % B were weldable. The weld properties were superior to WGB deposits with the same bulk chemical composition, due to the formation of a dendritic structure typical for welded joints, and the precipitation of cuboidal borides of Cr, Mo, and W in the ductile Ni-Cr based matrix. Both materials were found to have useful properties for 3D additive manufacturing (AM) and repair components manufactured from high gamma prime precipitation hardened superalloys.
