nexAir in Plastics

The plastics industry relies heavily on the supply of gases, and gas suppliers play a critical role in ensuring that these resources are available in sufficient quantities and at competitive prices. The use of gas in the plastics industry is widespread, and it is used in several processes, including the manufacturing of chemicals, polymers, and plastics. At nexAir, our team plays a critical role in ensuring that these gases are available in sufficient quantities to meet the needs of the plastics industry. We work closely with chemical manufacturers to ensure that their gas supplies are delivered on time and at competitive prices. Here are a few of the gases that we provide to ensure that the plastics industry can continue to excel and Forge Forward: 



Acetylene is a highly flammable gas that is used as a feedstock for the production of several chemicals, including vinyl chloride monomer (VCM). VCM is a key building block for the production of polyvinyl chloride (PVC), a versatile plastic that is used in a range of applications, including construction materials, medical devices, and consumer products. Acetylene is also used as a fuel gas for welding and cutting, making it an essential component in the manufacturing process for many plastic products.


Anhydrous Ammonia

Anhydrous ammonia is a colorless gas that is used as a source of nitrogen in the production of urea, a key ingredient in the manufacture of plastics. Urea is used to produce melamine, a type of plastic that is commonly used in household items such as dishes, utensils, and countertops. Anhydrous ammonia is also used as a fertilizer in agriculture, helping to support the growth of crops that are used in the production of bio-based plastics.



Nitrogen is another important chemical used in the plastics industry. It is commonly used as an inert gas in the production of plastic packaging materials, helping to preserve the freshness and quality of food and other perishable products. Nitrogen is also used as a refrigerant in the production of polystyrene foam, a lightweight material that is used in a range of applications, including insulation, packaging, and food service products.


Together, these gases help to drive innovation and growth in the plastics industry, supporting the production of a wide range of products that are used in everyday life. They play a critical role in helping manufacturers to produce high-quality plastic products at competitive prices, while also supporting environmental sustainability by enabling the production of bio-based plastics and reducing the need for fossil fuel-based materials. If you and your team need a steady, high-quality supply of gases to keep your projects moving, nexAir is your answer!
