Certain chemicals such as amatol and similar liquid gases may react with copper alloys to form metalloids which would negate the non-sparking properties of the alloys. Do not use Ampco or other high copper content tools in direct contact with acetylene due to the possible formation of explosive acetylides, especially in the presence of moisture.
