Welding cables used on board, on deck or in an engine room, are exposed to rough weather, oil and mechanical wear.
Welding cable is designed for use in electric arc-welding machines to power an electrode, a specially designed metal rod, that conducts a charge.
Welding cable is made to be extremely durable and flexible. Arc-welding requires a person to move the electrode around the shop and along the joints being welded, so it is essential to have a flexible welding cable that allows for ease of movement. A high strand count and rubber insulation help increase the cable's flexibility.
