This gas appears to have some real advantages over propylene/propane in some ways however unless it can be used to weld with those advantages don't mean much to the home user, main advantages being higher cutting speeds and somewhat cleaner cutting. It will be interesting to see if there actually is a new gas available that can be used for welding, I still think the Hydrogen will be a killer in this respect however but the industry has been waiting over 100 years for such a gas so we can wait a little longer to find out. .
