As the most commonly available form of steel, mild steel is championed as a terrifically versatile, cost-effective and easily fabricated material. It is set apart from other forms of steel because it contains a relatively low amount of carbon, which maintains the strength but makes it more ductile and easy to work.

Suitable for use in the manufacturing and transporting of an infinite range of domestic and commercial products, mild steel has a reduced tensile strength when compared to high or ultra-high carbon steels but more than makes up for this in its cost-effectiveness and versatility. It is suitable for cutting, drilling and welding, making mild steel box section and round bar a popular choice of material in the construction of frames and semi-permanent structures.
