Mild Steel

Mild steel is a type of low carbon steel, which is sometimes called low carbon steel. Ranges will differ based on the source, but by weight will usually range from 0.05 percent to 0.25 percent. Mild steel is not alloy steel and thus contains no large quantities of other elements besides iron. Mild Steel is more ductile, machinable, and weldable than high-carbon steels. Mild steel is available in various grades. Yet they all have carbon content within the parameters set out. Additional components are added to enhance valuable properties such as tolerance to rust, wear-resistance, and tensile strength.

Mild steel has a high breakage resistance. Even when cold mild steel, as opposed to higher carbon steels, is quite malleable. The physical properties of mild steel include high tensile strength, high impact strength, good malleability, excellent ductility, and weldability, with cold forming possibilities, it is not suitable for heat treatment to improve properties. Mild steel is one of the most commonly used construction materials. Mild Steel is easy to weld, both to itself and to other types of steel. Mild Steel cannot be hardened through heat treatment processes.
