Acetylene (C2H2)

Acetylene (C2H2) is a colorless, highly flammable gas, with a characteristic ether and garlic-like smell.

It is commonly known as a fuel gas for welding, cutting, and brazing. Acetylene has a unique chemical property which is the triple-bond between its carbon atoms.  This triple-bond attribute results in the gas having many unique features including a very high flame temperature when burned in an oxygen-rich atmosphere. Adjusting the feed ratio of oxygen and acetylene to an oxy-acetylene torch can produce a shielding atmosphere from oxidizing to carburizing, imparting different physical properties to working metal.
