News ReleaseAir Products Will Feature Its Range of MAXX™ Gases for High-Quality Welding and Cutting Production at FABTECH 2013

November 11, 2013 Lehigh Valley, Pa.

Air Products (NYSE:APD) will feature the company’s range of MAXX™ shielding gases—designed to deliver high levels of performance, including better weld quality and faster welding speeds—as well as the company’s line of assist gases for high-performance laser cutting at this year’s FABTECH show in Chicago, Ill., from November 18-21.

Air Products’ range of MAXX shielding gases can help welders achieve better metal fabrication results with fewer rejects when welding carbon steel, stainless steel, aluminum, and high-performance alloys. The MAXX range of gases includes Ferromaxx™ gases for faster, cleaner welding of carbon steel; Inomaxx™ gases, which provide maximum performance for welding stainless steel; and Alumaxx™ gas, a multi-purpose shielding gas specifically designed for high-quality welding of aluminum and its alloys. Air Products also provides assist gases for high-performance laser cutting in a full range of supply systems that can meet specific pressure and flow requirements.

Air Products provides gases for welding and cutting in traditional bulk supply for large gas volume requirements, as well as microbulk solutions for smaller gas volume requirements. A cost-effective alternative to cylinder gases, microbulk solutions eliminate the need to reorder cylinders or packs, as well as cylinder handling and changeover. With microbulk supply, gas is always on-tap, gas purity is more consistent, and shielding gas mixtures can be produced on-site.

FABTECH attendees are invited to stop by Booth N2334 to learn how Air Products is helping welders and cutters produce high-quality welds and precision cuts, maximize productivity, increase efficiency, reduce rejects, and improve their working environment.
