Mild & Structural Steel Products

Mild Steel

Mild steel, characterized by its low carbon content, is widely recognized for its versatility and durability, making it a fundamental material across various applications. In metallurgy, carbon is alloyed with iron to produce different types of steel, influencing properties like hardness and strength. Allied Steel provides a diverse selection of raw mild steel along with custom-fabricated items to your specifications. This includes material options such as hot-rolled, cold-rolled, commercial quality, galvanized, 1018, and more. Whether you’re a seasoned industry professional or a residential homeowner, our selection of mild steel products ensures unmatched quality and dependability.

Structural Steel

Structural steel is specifically designed and manufactured to be used in various construction applications. It is characterized by its strength, durability, and ability to support heavy loads over long spans. Structural steel is commonly used to create the framework of buildings, bridges, towers, and other structures where a combination of strength and stability is essential. Allied Steel provides various structural steel grades including, A36, A572, A500, A992A709, A786, AR400, and AR500.

Understanding the Characteristics of Mild Steel

Mild steel, also known as carbon or plain-carbon steel, is characterized by its low carbon content (usually 0.05% to 0.25%), giving it a “mild” quality. It is malleable and ductile, easily shaped through processes like bending or forming. Apart from carbon, it may contain trace elements like manganese for improved toughness. While mild steel has lower tensile strength compared to higher carbon steel, it offers cost advantages, making it a popular choice in construction, transportation, and household items. Its weldability and machinability contribute to its versatility in manufacturing.

Key Features of Structural Steel

High Strength: Structural steel has high tensile and yield strength, allowing it to withstand the loads and stresses imposed by the structure it supports.

Weldability: Structural steel is designed to be easily weldable, facilitating the construction and fabrication of various intricate structures.

Durability: Structural steel is extremely durable and very resistant to environmental factors, making it desirable for long-term use in diverse climates and conditions.

Ductility: Structural steel has tremendous formability properties, enabling it to be deformed without failure under extreme conditions, such as earthquakes or heavy winds, and then return to its original shape.

Versatility: Structural steel comes in many shapes, including angles, beams, channels, columns, and plates, allowing for flexibility in design and multiple construction applications.
