LEHIGH VALLEY, Pa., Nov. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --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 gasesfor 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. For more information about Air Products' full range of
high performance and industry standard gases for high-quality welding and
cutting production, call 800-654-4567 or visit www.airproducts.com/welding.
