Metals & Materials Processing

Forever has a nice ring to it. Praxair's oxygen and argon are used to make gold rings. Oxygen helps extract gold in the mining process and argon is used to protect it as it's melted down. #PraxairIsEverywhere
N2 Cured Strong

Nitrogen (N2)

When concrete is poured, it heats up during the curing process and expands, which can jeopardize concrete strength and even cause it to crack. Praxair’s liquid nitrogen can be used to cool down the concrete prior to pouring so it remains strong for important structures such as bridges and dams. #PraxairIsEverywhere
C3H8 Fire up the Grill
