Calcium Carbide

Product Information


Carbide generates acetylene gas when reacted with water. This acetylene gas is used for welding/cutting, and also as a base material for products formed through organic synthesis.


Our company makes use of the abundant lime resources from our own mines, producing most of the carbide used in Japan. This material is not only used as raw materials for our own products, but is also sold to Japanese domestic market as high quality carbide after selection. (We do not export carbide to overseas.)
