Langley provides offer for pipes package requirements

04 April 2019

Although best known as #thehomeofsuperduplex for bar and plate distribution, Langley Alloys are able to provide a competitive offer for the pipe package requirements, including flanges, fittings and associated components.

Making use of mill partnerships, extensive stocks, in-house inspection, production and expertise, we are well-placed to co-ordinate the supply of packages across all alloys.

Langley Alloys has continued to develop its product offering in recent years: (1) Investing £1.5M in increased stocks of nickel alloys (625, 725, 825, 925, 718, K-500); (2) Appointed as Sandvik’s distribution partner for duplex and super duplex alloys in the UK and USA; (3) Adding stainless steel hollow bars to our stock range – more than 80 sizes of Sanmac® 316L are now available ex-stock; and (4) Installing a deep hole borer and 1st stage machining.

These developments complement our unique trademarked alloys, such as Ferralium® 255, the very first super duplex stainless steel, invented by Langley Alloys. It is still the only super duplex to achieve 85ksi yield strength, and the 2.0% added copper content provides superior performance in the most challenging environments, including seawater, chemicals and selected acids.
