About Mild Steel Plate

Mild Steel Plate is a kind of carbon steel plate containing low amount of carbon. Mild steel is also called as “low carbon steel” as the amount of carbon found in mild steel ranges from 0.05% to 0.25% by weight as opposed to high carbon steel, which contains 0.30% to 2.0% carbon. It is different from alloy steel and does not contain large amount of alloying elements other than iron. Owing to the presence of low carbon, it is more ductile, weldable, and machinable as compared to carbon and other steels. Mild steel is a general purpose steel that is used in most things starting from table frames to cargo ships.

Production Processes

  • Production of Mild Steel Plate via 

Production of Mild Steel Plates generally involve three major steps, viz. primary steelmaking, secondary steelmaking, and casting. Iron ore, coke and lime are obtained and melted together in a blast furnace to produce virgin steel. Once melted, the mixture is transferred to another furnace to remove impurities and make other adjustments to steel’s chemical composition with the addition of carbon and other elements, thus producing mild steel. Then, the obtained product is allowed to solidify into a rectangular shape, which is subsequently brought down to the desired size via hot rolling, cold drawing, etc.
