  • A highly flammable gas

  • Slightly lighter than air and will collect at ceiling level

  • May cause dizziness in high concentrations

  • Highly reactive, acetylene is dissolved in acetone and contained within a porous mass inside the cylinder

  • The hottest and most efficient of all fuel gases

  • Low auto-ignition temperature – requires minimal energy to ignite in air or oxygen

  • Can react over time with some metals to form explosive acetylides

  • Acetylene is stored in specially designed cylinders to prevent decomposition

  • Unused gas will not collect in low-lying areas, ducts and drains causing a potential hazard


The only fuel gas that can be used to weld steel
