Which fuel should I use for my project?
Butane: Lowest heat transfer and well-suited for soldering electronic circuits, heat shrinking and small jewelry design and repair.
Propane: Ideal for small soldering jobs, softening putty or paint, loosening rusted bolts, creating a patina on wood or metal. Compatible with many hand-held torches.
MAP-Pro™: With high heat transfer, MAP-Pro is ideal for jobs requiring high heat such as soldering large diameter copper pipe, brazing or heat-treating or for larger jobs when you want to heat the materials faster. Use only with torches designed for MAP-Pro.
Oxy/MAP-Pro: These fuels in combination provide the highest heat transfer torches are hot enough for light welding and cutting thin metal. Must be used with a torch specifically designed to combine the fuels like the MT585OX.
