Mild Steel properties and uses.
Mild Steel is an alloy of iron and carbon. The proportion of carbon contained has an influence on the properties of the metal. The carbon content can vary from anywhere between 0.08% to 0.3%.
Mild Steel (or low carbon steel as it is often called) is stiff, strong and durable but the corrosion resistance is poor as it rusts easily; however, it can easily be painted or primed to protect it from rust we sell a range of Ambersil products for this. It is relatively cheap to buy so is a popular choice for most fabrications that require strength and durability.
We also stock a fully comprehensive range of metal paints to complete your project please ask our sales representatives.
