What is mapp gas?

Category: Industrial


Mapp gas is a type of gas that was created as a fuel for certain welding, cutting, brazing, operations. It is similar to acetylene, but lacks its shock sensitivity and, therefore, can be stored and transported in lighter containers. Mapp gas is caused by the rearranging of the molecular structure of acetylene and propane. Mapp gas is created with a distinct odor so leaking can be detected.
