StarFlame C® Cutting Fuel



Praxair's Cost Effective, Faster and Safer Alternative Cutting Fuel

Praxair's exclusive cutting fuel StarFlameC is propane based with a hydrocarbon additive that provides superb performance in most cutting applications.

StarFlame C cutting fuel is considered a “forgiving” fuel gas because good results can be achieved even when the heating or cutting tip is too close to the work piece or distance opens up one to two inches during cutting. Maintaining an exact distance from the work piece is not critical which makes StarFlame C cutting fuel an excellent choice for hand-torch cutting.

StarFlame C is colorless, flammable, nontoxic with a natural gaseous odor at room temperature and atmospheric pressure. Its characteristics make this gas a ‘new generation’ cutting fuel that is far more economical, faster and safer than acetylene.
