0361TQ HOFR Cables

0361TQ is a single core double-insulated flexible welding cable with a Heat and Oil Resistant, Flame-Retardant (HOFR) outersheath. It is designed to transmit high currents from electric welding machines to the welding tool itself. 0361TQ cables are constructed with Class 6 extra flexible conductors for cables with a cross-sectional area up to 95mm2 and Class 5 flexible conductors for cable sizes over 120mm2, allowing for flexible use under rough conditions including on assembly lines and conveyor systems, in machine tool and motor car manufacturing, ship building, and for manually and automatically operated line and spot welding machines.

Often referred to as HOFR cable, our 0361TQ is manufactured in accordance with the now withdrawn BS638 standard and is flame retardant to BS EN 60332-1-2. Its outersheath is designed to withstand the oils, greases, heat and other stresses of the welding environment and it is subjected to a test for welding cables which determines its resistance to hot particles. As a result, HOFR cables such as the 0361TQ are used across a wide variety of industry sectors.

  Black (plain copper) Orange (tinned copper)
Conductor 16mm2 to 95mm2: extra flexible plain copper (Class 6)
120mm2 and above: flexible plain copper (Class 5)
16mm2 to 95mm2: extra flexible tinned copper (Class 6)
120mm2 and above: flexible tinned copper (Class 5)
Separator Polyester tape (PET)
Insulation Ethylene Propylene Rubber (EPR) Type GP4
Outersheath Heat and Oil Resistant, Flame Retardant (HOFR) Type EM5

The 0361TQ has a voltage rating of 100V for welding applications and 450V for other applications if suitably protected against the risk of mechanical damage. Our black 0361TQ is suitable for use as an earthing return lead, flexible tail on power supplies, and Busbar connections. For cables that meet the requirements of the harmonised standard BS EN 50525-2-81, which superseded BS638, please refer to the H01N2-D and H01N2-E cables.
