Duraluminium and 18-8 stainless steels (improperly heat-treated) are common to face intergranular corrosion results - due to melting of some phases resulting in drastic failures.
In both cases, calcite dissolution is assumed to be the dominant weathering process - in the Czech literature this is referred to as intergranular corrosion (e.g.

Low carbon content means less carbide precipitation in the heat-affected zone during welding and a lower susceptibility to intergranular corrosion. For the achievement of the welding tests, a 3,3 kW Nd:Yag continous wave laser was used as a thermal source together with an ABB 6-axes robot and a coaxial cladding unit made by Rofin.

According to Sahoo, strontium additions do not affect mechanical properties and may cause a small increase in the intergranular corrosion. It minimizes the problems of underside shrinkage with no deleterious effects.
