Super duplex stainless steels

Langley Alloys is the premier distributor of super duplex stainless steels. Having created the very first grade, Ferralium® 255, in the 1960’s we now stock the most complete range of grades. This is supported by our partnerships with blue-chip producers such as Alleima (Sandvik) and Voestalpine Bohler edelstahl. Our range of grades includes:

Nickel-based alloys

We continue to invest strongly in a range of popular nickel-based alloys that provide high-strength, a wide temperature operating range and resistance to stress corrosion cracking. These include:

Several other grades in our portfolio reflect our rich history as a producer going back as far as 1938, including:

  • the high strength Naval alloy Hiduron® 130 (DIN 2.1504), which is now widely used in subsea components such as couplings, connectors, stab plates and valve trim.

  • the copper bearing alloy Hidurel® 5 (DIN 2.0855), used as a major engine bearing on the Spitfire aircraft and still specified in aerospace applications today.

With a number of metallurgists in our team, we are comfortable reviewing and meeting end user specifications – more than 2,000 of which are held in our system.

Added value services

Over the last few years, we have grown our ability to offer a range of added value services in-house with our own qualified inspectors and staff. This includes non-destructive testing such as ultrasonic and dye penetrant inspection; machining services including deep hole boring; additional product testing and 3.2 inspection.
