Cryogenic services involves the handling of liquefied gases like helium, hydrogen, methane, nitrogen, oxygen and fluorine in temperatures between -150 oF to -450 oF.

The "cryogenic" properties of these materials can be summarized to:

Gas Helium
- He -
Hydrogen
- H2 -
Methane
- CH4 -
Nitrogen
- N2 -
Oxygen
- O2 -
Fluorine
- F2 -
