Do you Need Mild Steel ?
Mild steel, also called low carbon steel, is one of the most commonly used steels. It is used in the construction and automotive industries as well as for fences, signs and countless other applications. It is valued for its weldability, workability and plasticity. Structural steel is characterized primarily by a carbon content of less than 0.2% by weight.The American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI) four-digit mild steel classification codes begin with “10” and end with two digits less than 20, indicating the steel’s approximate carbon content in cents.
This steel is an iron alloy whose main alloying element is carbon. It is one of the most commonly used forms of steel and can be used for a variety of general applications. Steel owes its popularity to its sufficient strength at low cost as well as its excellent machinability and weldability. Different grades of Steel have different carbon contents, with higher carbon content resulting in greater strength at the expense of ductility. In some cases, additional alloy elements are added to improve properties such as tensile strength, corrosion resistance and wear resistance.

Mild steel is made up of an iron (Fe) base with the addition of small amounts of carbon. Low-carbon steel is typically defined as having less than 0.2 % carbon by ASM International. Different grades of mild steel are defined by their differing levels of carbon. Another common alloying element is manganese (Mn). There are many different grades of Steel. Mild steels classified according to the AISI (American Iron and Steel Institute) numbering system will all begin with “10” as their first two digits signifying their low carbon content. Low-carbon steel, and by extension mild steel, will have the final 2 digits of the designation as any number less than 20 (approximate carbon content multiplied by 100). Most mild steel has low (<1%) quantities of phosphorus and sulfur and these elements are actively limited as they are considered impurities.
We know MILD STEEL !
Mild steel is a general-purpose material that can be found in most industries. Some typical applications include: car bodies, furniture, wire, rebar, and fasteners. Higher strength mild steel is used for structures and storage tank plating. This steel is ductile and strong, making it a very durable material. The strength of mild steel varies depending on its type and classification. Strength is the amount of energy that can be absorbed without breaking. It is calculated as the area under the material’s stress-strain curve defined up to the failure point. The mechanical property commonly used to determine the strength of a material is Charpy impact strength. For example, the Charpy impact strength for 1020 is 24 J at 10°C.
