RADNOR, Pa. -- Airgas, Inc. (NYSE: ARG) today launched a new specialty gases catalog while at the Pittsburgh Conference 2005 (PITTCON), taking place in Orlando, FL from February 27 to March 4, 2005.

The catalog includes five detailed sections covering the following product areas:

--Pure gases

--Binary gas mixtures

--Specialty applications, ranging from analytical gases and environmental monitoring gases to process chemicals and hydrocarbon processing gases

--Specialty gas equipment

--Laboratory safety products

Also included is a detailed appendix that provides useful information to help users specify gases, including cylinder conversion charts, guidelines for handling specialty gas cylinders and a comprehensive glossary of terms.

Copies of the catalog will be on display at the Airgas booth, #4301 during the show, and Airgas specialty gas and technical specialists will be on hand to answer questions and take catalog requests for fulfillment in the weeks following PITTCON. Customers and prospects can also contact their local specialty gas specialists to request a catalog.
