Power Cables & Hoses

Power Cable, Water & Gas Hoses

TIG Torch packages come with either a low-cost PVC vinyl plastic power cable and hose set, or a premium high-flex, non-conductive rubber.   These materials were chosen because they offer superior insulation properties, and are non-conductive, which is critical in TIG welding hose construction.  The picture on the left shows a braided rubber, and vinyl plastic hose. 

Note: Power cables and hoses can be identified by the part number -- they typically have an "R" at the end of the part number which indicates "rubber" hose material.

Vinyl (plastic) vs. Rubber -- Which is Better?  
It comes down to your budget!  Arc-Zone recommends rubber power cables, water and gas hoses.  Rubber cables are more durable, more flexible, and not as susceptible to melting when exposed to direct heat.
