Nitrous Oxide (N2O), commonly known as laughing gas, is a colorless, non-flammable gas that is heavier than atmospheric air. Approximately 30% of the “nitrous” in the atmosphere is the result of human activity, mostly through agriculture and industry. Nitrous Oxide has become popular with automotive enthusiasts to increase horsepower in internal combustion engines. Nitrous Oxide is available in gaseous form.
Nitrous Oxide (N2O) may be used as an oxidizer in rocket engines. Nitrous Oxide has major advantages over other oxidizers in that it is much less toxic, and due to its stability at room temperature is also easier to store and relatively safe to carry on a flight.
Nitrous Oxide (N2O) has proved essential for large scale integration in electronic production. It is used for the gas-phase chemical deposition stage during the production of semiconductors, LCD displays and thin-film oxides for products we use every day, such as computers and smartphones.
Food & Beverage
Nitrous Oxide (N2O) is an approved food additive, specifically as an aerosol spray propellant. Its most common uses in food production are in aerosol whipped cream canisters and cooking sprays.
Nitrous Oxide’s (N2O) painkilling and numbing qualities begin to take effect when the gas is inhaled at concentrations of ten percent and is used for that reason on some medical and dental procedures for analgesic and anesthetic applications.
