What Makes Up a Quality Welding Cable?
When it comes to welding, there are many critical qualities important for choosing the best welding cable for your job.
EPDM jacket resists cuts, tears, abrasion, grease, oil, water, and flame.
National Electrical Code Article 630 electric welders. Operational temperature ranges from -40C to 105C. Meets UL VW-1 flame test as outlined in UL1581.
High quality annealed 30-gauge bare copper conductor.
A combination of our copper stranding and EPDM jacket allows superior flexibility.
What Makes ToughFlex™ The Industry’s Best Welding Cable?
ToughFlex™ meets all the criteria above plus more which we will share here. This is why we believe it’s also continued to be the best-selling welding cable available.
First, ToughFlex™ is extremely durable. It is jacketed with an EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer). This synthetic rubber jacket excels in resistance allowing ToughFlex™ to prevent cuts, tears & abrasion and withstand grease, oil, water, and flame.
Second, ToughFlex™ undergoes intense testing and analysis proving its safety for welding. ToughFlex™ is rated to 600 Volts, meets the National Electrical Code article 630 electric welders, and UL VW-1 flame test outlined in UL1581. Along with the extensive testing, Kalas’ has more than 60 years in manufacturing copper wire & cable, touting a history of expertise. Therefore we are able to put our customers’ minds at ease by knowing they are receiving a product manufactured by experts in the field.
One of the top reasons ToughFlex™ is the best welding cable is its conductor – our copper. It’s Annealed 30 (0.010) gauge bare copper conductor with class K stranding. We start with 5/16” copper rod and with our rod mill we are able to draw down the copper to a finished gauge ready for jacketing. This gives Kalas complete control of the quality, efficacy, and craftsmanship of each product. The fine Annealed 30 gauge (0.010) bare copper conductor makes ToughFlex™ extremely flexible and easy to work with, coil and store. At Kalas, we are proud of our manufacturing process and the complete control it offers to our customers.
Lastly, something Kalas offers through owning the manufacturing process of our cables – is options in lengths, colors, packaging, finishing, and more. ToughFlex™ comes in #6 – 250MCM and virtually endless possibilities of customization. We offer ToughFlex™ in the standard black along with Blue, Green, Red, and Yellow jacket colors. We stock 250 ft. and 500 ft. reels, making orders in those increments extremely easy to ship right out the door quickly including cut lengths in 25’ increments. We also offer full-service completion of assemblies so customers can buy finished whips, leads, and grounds right from us in a wide array of welding connectors from top brands such as Lenco and Tweco.
