Default chem-o-lene

Is anyone using Chem-o-lene as replacement for acetylene? Aluminum?

Yes, Chemolene, Chemtane and Propylene are being used in the brazing and soldering industries. And also to fuel cutting torches.

There is another alt fuel gas that has arrived on the scene, but I can't remember the name of it - though I probably will in 10 minutes ...

For myself, welding aluminum is limited to H2 and Acet - I do not like the smut on the surface with the alt fuel gases.

Thank you Kent. I think I will stick with acetylene for now.
