The various grades of mild steel are determined by their chemical composition which helps to determine its properties. This includes tensile strength, yield strength, hardness levels, and weldability among others. Depending on the grade chosen, mild steel can provide different levels of strength or hardness.
What is Mild Steel?
Mild steel is a type of carbon steel with low carbon content of 0.05% to 0.25%, and is one of the most commonly used materials in manufacturing. It has excellent welding, forming, machining, and cutting properties making it suitable for a wide range of applications. Mild steel can be found in various forms such as pipes, tubes, sheets, plates, bars, and rods.
In terms of price per kilogram (kg), mild steel typically costs around $2-4/kg depending on its quality and grade. Furthermore, mild steel is also an affordable option relative to other metals and alloys which can cost significantly more.
Overall, mild steel is an economical metal with many beneficial properties that make it a great choice for a variety of applications. Its low cost and ease of machining make it ideal for both commercial and residential use. With its wide range of grades and forms available, mild steel can be used in many fields such as manufacturing, construction, automotive, engineering, and more.

The manufacturing process of mild steel involves obtaining raw materials such as iron ore, melting it in a furnace to produce molten iron, casting it into desired shapes using continuous casting, rolling it into the desired shape and size using a hot rolling process, subjecting it to heat treatment for improved mechanical properties, cooling it in a controlled manner, finishing it by adding surface coatings, cutting it into specific lengths, and bundling it for transport.
