Pure Calcium Carbide, a white and odorless solid, has the chemical formula CaC2. Carbides of silicon, tungsten, and other are sought for their physical hardness, strength, and chemical resistance. Whereas, Calcium Carbide is largely used as a source of Acetylene and other chemicals. On a commercial scale, however, Calcium Carbide can have a range of uses depending on its level of purity. It is also known as Calcium Acetylide, Phenyl Glyceryl Ether Diacetate, and Glycerol Phenyl Ether Diacetate. Chemically pure or Laboratory reagents are the two terms often used to describe Lab Grade chemicals. Lab Grade chemicals do not meet any accepted quality or purity requirements such as the ACS Grade, the USP Grade, and the FCC Grade, despite their acceptablepurity. Our Lab Grade chemicals are exceptionally pure in terms of heavy metal impurities. In the United States of America (USA), Lab Alley sells its high-quality products online at
