» Welding cable is used to power the secondary circuit of electric arc-welding generators, the circuit that controls the electrode that emits the charge used to weld. This cable is made from flexible copper wire surrounded by a protective covering that is resistant to flame, heat, oil and abrasions, among other things.
» Welding cable comes in various grades depending on durability and strength. The wiring itself is usually made from copper, carefully stranded to allow for maximum flexibility. The covering of the welding wire may be made from Neoprene or EPDM rubber, short for ethylene propylene diene M-class rubber.
