LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa., Nov. 5, 2012

LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa., Nov. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --Air Products (NYSE: APD) will
showcase its range of MAXX™ shielding gases– designed for improved welding
safety, quality and productivity– as well as the company's assist gases for
high-performance laser cutting at this year's FABTECH show in Las Vegas, Nev.,
from November 12-14.

Included in the Air Products range of Maxx shielding gases are 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. In addition, Air Products 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, as well as its CryoEase® Microbulk Solution, a cost-effective
alternative to cylinder supply. Microbulk supply eliminates the need to
reorder cylinders or packs, as well as cylinder handling and changeover. With
CryoEase Microbulk Solution, gas is always on-tap, gas purity is more
consistent, and shielding gas mixtures can be produced on-site.

FABTECH attendees can stop by Booth C3814 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. Attendees can also download Air Products' new Gas Converter
mobile app, which the company will also highlight at the show. The new app
enables users to quickly convert weight and volume measures for industrial
gases such as nitrogen, oxygen, argon, hydrogen, helium, and carbon dioxide,
as well as LNG/methane.
