Mild steel benefits from many of these qualities, but its lower carbon content makes it more malleable than other forms of steel. This ease of fabrication is one of the most attractive qualities of mild steel, and it is a popular low cost choice of steel for a huge number of construction and structural applications. It can be drilled, cut and welded; and it is very easily recycled after use.
Steel is one of the most versatile and widely used materials in the world, and its combination of strength and formability make it an effective high performance, cost-effective and recyclable material for the creation of small and large components for any number of everyday and specialist products.
