Acetylene

Acetylene is the primary fuel for oxy-fuel welding as oxyacetylene. The combustion of acetylene with oxygen produces a flame of over 6,000 degrees Fahrenheit, making it the hottest burning common fuel gas and the ideal choice for gas welding, general repair and cutting applications.  It’s also commonly used for brazing, bending, and artistic applications.
