 Product Description

The Miners Grade Calcium Carbide is delivered to your door in five two-pound (quart) containers. The flat rate price covers all HAZMAT and delivery fees.

It can only be shipped to addresses in the contiguous United States. This is the only amount and size currently available for shipment.

The Carbide is drop shipped from a different location. We must have a deliverable street address and valid phone number for this item, cannot be shipped to PO Boxes.


Carbide can only be shipped via FEDEX Ground which is included in the price.

We understand completely that 10 pounds may not sound like an economical amount to purchase but unfortunately due to Hazardous Material Handling Fees and Regulations this is really the only economical amount to ship. Approximately $80.00 of the purchase price goes toward the cost of preparing and shipping the Calcium Carbide. If we could ship a smaller amount the cost to you would still be about the same.

We sell most Calcium Carbide to cavers and collectors of Carbide lamps. Quantity: 10 pounds, Size: miners grade. Miners grade carbide is 1/4" to 1/2" in size.

Due to they way Hazardous Materials must be handled, expect delivery in 2-10 days depending on your location in the Continental US.

  1. Top Notch

    Posted by Chris Clark on 26th Mar 2019

    Working for a National Park cave, I utilize carbide infgd felling of a story of discovery. It helps to bring things to life from the darkness. Plus, it keeps some of the old ways alive.

  2. what I expected

    Posted by Steve on 22nd Feb 2019

    Product was well packaged with the top flaps securing the cans in place, plan on using them in the future when i have a need for more product

  3. over priced

    Posted by john on 19th Jun 2018

    as karst says the shipping cost is almost $80.00 dollar, the box is made to hold 6 cans you only get 5 cans For very little more money they could include the sixth can and would make the cost per pound less and give you a better value. And the cans did have some dents

  5. One of the better deals for mail order carbide

    Posted by Dave Thorpe on 8th Jun 2017

    Calcium carbide has become a little hard to find and pricey to mail. Karst Sports is actually a good deal when you consider how expensive it is to ship.

  7. it works

    Posted by Jackpine Savage on 31st Jan 2017

    I'm not an expert on carbide, but as far as I can tell it works.

  8. Poorly Packaged

    Posted by Lloyd Lisco on 30th Aug 2016

    The five cans arrived here with four of the cans bent in several places, Two of the cans bent severely. These five cans were packed in a six can box, The open area not filled with any cushioning material. This allowed the cans to move from their position in the container and to bend each other as they moved about. No care was used in the packing of this hazardous material, I now have four of the cans I paid for in non sellable condition. My experience with Karst has been very disappointing.
