Specialty Chemical Processing Alloys

FountainHead Alloys is a European supplier of specialty Chemical Processing alloys. Our comprehensive inventory includes a diverse mix of nickel alloys, cobalt alloys, titanium and stainless steels.


FountainHead Alloys understands the performance requirements expected from alloys used in the Chemical Processing Industry. We have taken careful measures to ensure the chemical processing alloys that we provide are well suited to your specific applications. Along with our diverse inventory mix, FountainHead Alloys also employs engineers who work in our metallurgical laboratory for material testing and can provide performance analysis, technical investigations and electronic test reports. Our engineers are capable of assessing the information provided, and finding which of our alloys will perform to your needs.


Offshore oil rigs must maintain structural integrity and limit corrosion in a wide variety of seawater applications. Duplex stainless steels and high nickel-molybdenum alloys are used in place of austenitic stainless steels, which are prone to general pitting, stress cracking, and have limited strength. Flare tips and other high temperature applications utilize alloys such as RA330®, 253MA, and 310 stainless steel. Both RA330® and 253MA show oxidation resistance up to 1148°C (2100°F).


Our chemical processing alloys are used for equipment such as the columns, heat exchangers, packing, reboilers, piping, vapor lines, jacket piping and pumps due to their resistance to the chlorides and acids.

AL-6XN® and ZERON® 100 in these applications perform better than stainless steels such as 316L, 317L and 904L.


Our cut to length coil leveling line allows for custom length plates to minimize scrap. We offer a complete inventory of materials in all product forms. With increased strength, duplex stainless steels are used over austenitic stainless steels. With a family of duplex stainless steels including ZERON® 100 and 2205, we have the right material for your needs. Duplex stainless steels achieve 25-30% weight savings over 304L and 316L.
