Propane, chemical formula C3H8, has numerous applications. It is one of the most widely used gases in the world today.
Propane fuel isn't as strong of an option as acetylene or propylene when it comes to welding. It doesn't get quite as hot, and therefore cannot be used for fusion welding. However, it can be used in heating and cutting, brazing or silver soldering. If you want to cut—but not weld—propane is the way to go.
Propane gas has a staggering amount of uses in the modern world:
Wherever there is a need for either energy or heat, propane can bring it. Before using propane, of course, you should consult its Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS). You can never be too careful. Although propane is safer and more stable than many alternatives, it is still flammable and prone to accident if you are irresponsible. Never take safety for granted!
