    Welding wire question

    I have some old welding wire that is labeled "Laribee Neoprene Welding Cable 600v -40°C". What is the -40°C? How do I find the max temp for the neoprene shielding?

    That is welding lead, not welding wire. Welding wire is what is used in a MIG machine as the filler metal. Why are you needing to know the max temp for the shielding/insulation? It should be good for most any normal welding application, as is.
