Physical Properties of Mild Steel

  • High tensile strength.
  • High impact strength.
  • Good ductility and weldability.
  • A magnetic metal due to its ferrite content.
  • Good malleability with cold-forming possibilities.
  • Not suitable for heat treatment to improve properties.

What is MS grade steel?

Low carbon steel or mild steel Low carbon steel has 0.04–0.3% carbon content and is the most common grade of carbon steel. Mild steel is also considered low carbon steel as it is defined as having a low carbon content of 0.05–0.25%.
