It was the first company in the United States to produce oxygen from air using a cryogenic process and continues to be a major technological i...morennovator in the industrial gases industry. The Company's main products for its industrial gases business are atmospheric gases and process gases. It also designs, engineers and builds equipment that produces industrial gases for internal use and external sale. The companys surface technologies segment, operated through Praxair Surface Technologies, Inc., supplies wear-resistant and high-temperature corrosion-resistant metallic and ceramic coatings and powders. Praxair serves approximately 25 industries as diverse as healthcare and petroleum refining; computer-chip manufa...morecturing and beverage carbonation; fiber-optics and steel making and aerospace, chemicals and water treatment. Atmospheric gases are the highest volume products produced by Praxair. Using air as its raw material, Praxair produces oxygen, nitrogen and argon through several air separation processes of which cryogenic air separation is the most prevalent. Praxair also led the development and commercialization of non-cryogenic air separation technologies for the production of industrial gases. These technologies open important new markets and optimize production capacity for the company by lowering the cost of supplying industrial gases. These technologies include proprietary vacuum pressure swing adsorption and membrane separation to produce gaseous oxygen and nitrogen, respectively. Praxair also manufactures precious metal and ceramic sputtering targets used mainly in the production of semiconductors. The Company's surface technologies segment supplies wear-resistant and high-temperature corrosion-resistant metallic and ceramic coatings and powders to the aircraft, printing, textile, plastics, primary metals, petrochemical and other industries.
