Acetylene for Metalfabrication Industry

The synthetic fuel gas.

Fast brazing and cutting

Acetylene is a combustible gas that is obtained only by synthesis. Extremely unstable under normal conditions, it is transported in special containers when inside it is stabilized by a solvent (acetone or dimethylforlmamide) making the handling of the containers safe.

Acetylene is well used in braze welding processes due to the high flame temperature that it develops and still remains the combustible gas that allows the greatest productivity in this process.

Hydrogen for Metalfabrication Industry
Combustible and very light gas, it has the characteristic of binding easily with oxygen to form water; it is an exothermic reaction, but it has the characteristic of deoxidizing everything it encounters if supported by a little energy. In the TIG and MAG welding processes it is used in small percentages precisely for its deoxidizing function but also for the contribution of energy that it can give to the welding process.

Nitrogen for Metalfabrication Industry
Nitrogen is a gas which under normal conditions is considered inert, but if subjected to extreme conditions, such as during the welding process, it can become reactive. Generally used to inert the ustenitic steels for root protection, it is also used in small percentages in argon for the welding of Duplex and Superduplex steels as it allows to maintain the metallurgical characteristics of these particular steels unaltered.
