Detailed Product Specifications

Calcium Carbide is a grayish-black crystalline compound obtained by heating pulverized limestone or quicklime with carbon and used to generate acetylene gas, as a dehydrating agent, and in the manufacture of graphite and hydrogen. Calcium carbide is also used as a fuel in steelmaking to extend the scrap ratio to liquid iron depending on economics. It is also used as a powerful deoxidizer at ladle treatment facilities.

Property: Industrial calcium carbide is gray or black. It can adsorb moisture from the air and is an electrical conductor. It dissolves in water and produces acetylence, calcium hydroxide and releases heat.

Uses: Calcium carbide is a very important basic material in the organic synthesis industry. When mixed with other materials, the combination can produce acetylene, chloroprene rubber, calcium cyanamide, acetate acid, trichloroethylene, and acetaldehyde. Moreover, it can be used as a desulfuring agent in steel manufacturing and is used for metal cutting and welding.TRANSPORTATION: Transportation by all means of transport except air transport. 

Inspection Details: SGS or any other agency as per your requirement.
