Mild Steel is also referred to as plain carbon steel or low carbon steel as it contains a very small percentage of carbon which makes it tough and strong but not readily tempered. The percentage of carbon is sometimes altered in steel to change its physical properties.Almost every heavy engineering and construction industry is always in search of a variety of steel which can be used for a wide range of applications and deliver high performance while also being cost effective. Many different unique properties of mild steel such as high strength, hardness, easy availability and affordability, etc. make it suitable for a wide range of applications. For instance, this particular kind of steel is aggressively used to make knives, nut bolts, hinges, chains, armours, pipes, magnets, military equipment, etc.Mild steel is the most common form of steel and has wide applications due to its defining properties such as low tensile strength, wielding abilityand malleability, etc. which makes it easy to be hammered or pressed into different shapes without breaking or cracking. As a matter of fact, the hardness of steel can be altered or increased through the carburizing process. Mild steel can also be magnetized. Through the heat treatment, the mechanical properties of steel such as ductility, yield strength, hardness or impact resistance can be changed to suit the requirements of a product.
