Why Mild Steel?

Affordability

As it’s easier to produce and takes less time to process, mild steel is one of the cheapest steel options available to businesses.

Weld-225x225-ParkerSteel

Weldability and Machinability

Mild steel can be worked on and coalesced with relative ease without distorting the material. This can be quite beneficial depending on what you need the material for and is one of the main reasons businesses choose mild steel over other metals.

Carburising

One of the downsides of mild steel is that it has a low tensile strength. Fortunately, this can be improved using a method called carburising, which improves the strength and longevity of the steel whilst still keeping costs down.
