Strong, versatile, highly workable: mild steel is by far one of the most desirable metal materials for commercial, domestic, industrial, DIY and home garden use. This affordable and adaptable melding of iron and carbon is particularly renowned for its ductility - making it not only weldable but easy to cut, drill and forge according to your exact specifications. But that's not all...
Mild steel is known for its workability and also for the multitude of exceptionally practical products that are able to be rendered from this fantastic ferrous metal. From round, square, flat and T-bar to rolled sheet, universal beams and columns, mild steel is a brilliant foundation for many materials that are useful in the construction and engineering world, all the way down to everyday DIY, decorative artwork and gardening.
Often preferable to other forms of steel owing to its relatively low carbon composition - which maintains strength but also makes it more ductile and easy to work with - it's simple to see why mild steel materials are surging in popularity.
