Does anyone know for certain if calcium carbide's contact with wood or plastic would cause any corrosive or other negative reaction?

Oops, sorry I misread the question. I thought you asked about metal also. Disregard.

Raw wood will ways have a certain percentage of moisture which could react with the carbide.

I'm a (retired) chemist. Plastic no issue. Wood ... I wouldn't.

Rich, here's a good one...with this crazy "reading comprehension" thing I got going on, this time I actually read ALWAYS! Ha! Usually I read something stupidly wrong, which gets me in trouble when I post! Ha ha. For once it worked right! I didn't see the 'AL', but my mind automatically put it there, and for once it was correct!
