Mild steel has low carbon content and is therefore extremely workable whilst also allowing the material to be welded. This steel is also extremely strong meaning that mild steel has a great number of applications due to these properties. Mild steel is one of the most common steels and this results in many sections, beams and bars being created using this material. It has many applications and many uses resulting in mild steel being used in many common constructional objects and structures. Mild steel is touch, ductile and malleable combining a good tensile strength whilst lacking in corrosion resistance. Certain sections or bars of mild steel can be galvanised to combat this. Galvanisation comprises of the mild steel being dipped in a zinc coating which acts as a protective layer against this oxidisation process.
