SPAANSTEQ 450 g MAPP Gas Canister for Brazing


R 160.00INCL VAT

MAPP gas is widely regarded as a safer and easier-to-use substitute for acetylene. MAPP gas can be used for heating, soldering and brazing  due to its high flame temperature of 2925 °C (5300 °F) in oxygen. Although acetylene has a higher flame temperature (3160 °C, 5720 °F)

MAPP gas is also used in combustion with air for brazing and soldering, where it has a slight advantage over competing for propane fuel due to its higher combustion temperature of 2,020 °C (3,670 °F) in air.

However, for the small-scale user the MAPP flame is still highly desirable, having higher flame temperatures and energy densities than any flame other than acetylene/oxygen, but without the dangers and inconveniences of acetylene/oxygen. Jewelers, glass bead makers, and many others find it very useful. Plumbers, refrigeration and HVAC engineers and other tradesmen also value the high heat capacity of the MAPP/air flame;
