Welding Wire

What Is Welding Cable?

Welding cable is a cable that is very finely stranded for flexibility. It is also sometimes referred to as a grounding cable. Most weld wire resists flame, grease, abrasion, tar and oil. Most weld wire possesses good color retention. This type of cable is typically used because of its flexibility and versatility.

Can I Use Welding Wire in Marine Applications?

Although weld wire is often used for battery cables in marine applications, the insulation must be oil and water-resistant. If the cable is not oil and water resistant, it can become saturated. 

In What Applications Can I Use Weld Wire?

Allied Wire and Cable's welding cables have neoprene jackets, making them appropriate for tight battery applications as well as superior alternatives to battery cable. Welding cables can also be used for secondary voltage-resistance welding leads and in power supply applications not exceeding 600 volts.
