Air Products & Chemicals Inc.APD will display its portfolio of PolarFit Cryogenic Solutions used in elastomer manufacturing at the International Elastomer Conference (Rubber Expo) in Cleveland, OH, to be held from Oct 12-15.

Air Products, a global leader in advanced cryogenic technology applications, provides liquid nitrogen-based technologies to elastomer manufacturers. These enable them to improve their product quality while curtailing costs during deflashing, cryogenic grinding, process cooling, and inerting applications.

Air Products' technical experts will attend to the queries of conference attendees and speak about specific process challenges. The company also provides solutions which can help elastomer manufacturers grind primarily heat-sensitive or difficult-to-mill materials in a more effective and efficient way. Air Products has trial facilities in Allentown, PA, where customers can decide on the feasibility of using cryogenics in their process while considering the costs alongside.

Air Products makes industrial gases as well as a variety of polymer and performance chemicals. It also supplies processing equipment. The company serves technology, energy, industrial and health care customers globally.

Air Products' industrial gases business in the EMEA region has been facing pressure from a weak operating environment. The company is also exposed to currency headwinds. Moreover, it has a debt-laden balance sheet.
