More about ACETYLENE

General Informations about Acetylen (C₂H₂)

Acetylen (chemical formula C₂H₂) is a synthesis gas. 

This hydrocarbon is either produced from the reaction between calcium carbide and water, either of chemical origin.

Colorless, it is odorless if pure but otherwise has a strong garlic odor (due to the phosphine in calcium carbide).

Acetylene is an unstable gas, highly combustible and needs to be stabilized.

Applications :

Here are some of its applications, by activity:

Mechanical and metal fabrication

Combined with pure Oxygen, its flame temperature can reach more than 3000°C (or 5400°F).

It can thus be used to weld various metals (steel, stainless steel, etc.), to heat, form or treat them. 

Acetylene is also used to cut steel.


Acetylene ALPHAGAZ 1 (99.6% pure) is used in Atomic Absorption Spectrometry (AAS). 

Another of its applications is chemical synthesis.

Glass and metals

The acetylenic flame is used to lubricate production moulds (glass, aluminium, etc...).
