Mild steel is a fantastic low cost steel material which is preferred due to its malleability and capacity for recycling. It benefits from the combination of strength, formability and versatility of steel which has made it the widely used material it is.
Steel is used all over the world in a huge number of industries, and there is little that is manufactured, processed or transported without the use of steel.
Mild steel is so called because of the lower carbon content which makes it easier to work and form than stronger forms of steel, so components made from mild steel can be reworked and recycled in a number of ways. Cold formed mild steel tube is a fantastic material for a number of structural applications and can be effectively used to build frames and trailers, and even supporting posts in fence building.
With such a wide variety of uses, it is easy to see why our iron grade 43a hollow steel tube offers a high performance and ‘green’ option in domestic, commercial and industrial applications.
