Air Products gases, typically provided in gaseous and liquid form, enable customers in a wide range of industries to improve their environmental performance, product quality, and productivity.
Argon is used in many applications in glass manufacturing. It is colorless, non-reactive, non-flammable and has low thermal conductivity.
Helium is used to protect the glass surface in fiber-optic glass production and to improve refining within the bubbling process during glass manufacturing.
Hydrogen is used in glass manufacturing for atmosphere control, cutting and polishing, heat treating, melting, and softening.
Nitrogen is used in glass manufacturing for atmosphere control and flat glass delamination.
Oxygen is used in glass manufacturing applications like cutting/polishing, heat treating, melting/softening, bubbling, and oxygen-enhanced combustion.
Specialty gases such as krypton, xenon, and neon are used to fill items made of glass in order to improve their performance or make them function.
