Properties and Uses of Mild Steel

  • The calculated average industry grade mild steel density is 7,861.093kgm3. Its young’s modulus (a measure of its stiffness) is around 210,000 Mpa.
  • A moderate amount of carbon makes mild sleep different from other types. Carbon atoms get affixed in the interstitial sites of the iron lattice, making it stronger and harden. However, the hardness comes at the price of a decrease in ductility.
  • Compared to other types of steel, mild steel is ideal for welding purposes, as it conducts electric current effectively without tarnishing the metal surface. 
  • Mild steel has ferromagnetic properties, which makes it ideal for manufacture of electrical devices and motors. It yields itself easily to magnetization. 
  • Unlike other grades of carbon steel, which tend to be brittle, mild steel is hard, yet malleable, making it the ideal choice for the construction of pipelines, construction materials, and many other daily use products like cook ware. 
  • Mild steel can be machined and shaped easily due to its inherent flexibility. It can also be hardened with carburizing, making it the ideal   material   for production.
  • High amount of carbon also makes mild steel vulnerable to rust. Naturally, people prefer stainless over mild steel when they want a rust-free technology. It however has a high application in the car manufacturing industry as well as in the construction industry where it is used as structural steel (Roberge, 2002; Jaikumar et al., 2010).
