Propylene advantages are most easily demonstrated on flame cutting machines and with handheld torches. The principle advantages of flame cutting with propylene are increased production, lower cutting costs and improved edge quality.
HVOF Thermal Spray
Polymer-grade propylene’s high level of purity and vapor pressure make it an excellent choice for High Velocity Oxy-Fuel thermal spray applications. The product purity, averaging 99.5 percent, provides excellent and consistent results, while the vapor pressure allows the end-user to consistently maintain the line pressure required to feed the HVOF system.
When oxidized, propylene’s double carbon bond releases high energy in the primary flame, complemented by an even greater energy release in the secondary flame. Brazing with propylene averages 20 percent more productivity than brazing with natural gas, propane or propane blends.
