Rubber, plastics, paint.

Liquid nitrogen is employed in the cold grinding of thermoplastics, hardening and deflashing rubber, which is only possible at very low temperatures, and for cooling to increase quality and production capacity e.g. in blow moulding and synthetic resins. Fluorine mixtures are used for surface treatment of plastic containers and oxygen (ozone) increases the coating quality of plastics.
