MS ROUND BARS
MS round bars are cylindrical-shaped Rods made from Mild Steel. MS Round Bars are used by forging industries, bright bar industries, auto-ancillaries, foundation and anchor bolts, pins, rollers, bushes, and many more engineering industries.
MS SQUARE BARS
MS square bars are Cubiodal-shaped steel rods made out of Mild Steel. MS Square Bars are used in cranes gantry, bullock carts axles, conveyors, truck trailers and tippers, bright bars, anchor bolts and many more engineering industries.
What is Mild Steel (MS)?
Mild steel is a type of carbon steel with a low amount of carbon – it is actually also known as “low carbon steel.” Although ranges vary depending on the source, the amount of carbon typically found in mild steel is 0.05% to 0.25% by weight, whereas higher carbon steels are typically described as having a carbon content from 0.30% to 2.0%. If any more carbon than that is added, the steel would be classified as cast iron.
Less carbon means that mild steel is typically more ductile, machinable, and weldable than high carbon and other steels, however, it also means it is nearly impossible to harden and strengthen through heating and quenching. The low carbon content also means it has very little carbon and other alloying elements to block dislocations in its crystal structure, generally resulting in less tensile strength than high carbon and alloy steels. Mild steel also has a high amount iron and ferrite, making it magnetic.
Mild steel is made similar to how other carbon steels are made. A common way this is done involves a combination of iron ore and coal. Once the coal and iron ore are extracted from the earth, they are melted together in a blast furnace. Once melted, the mixture is moved to another furnace to burn off any impurities that they may have, as well as to make any other adjustments to the mild steel’s chemical composition. Following that, the steel is allowed to solidify into a rectangular shape. This slab of mild steel is then usually brought down to the desired size using processes called hot rolling or cold drawing, although there are other methods that can also be used.
Mild Steel Angle is a shape with two flat surfaces that are perpendicular and provide good resistance to bending in any direction. Angles are one of the most common structural steel shapes and are widely used in structures and construction. Mild Steel Angles are used in various construction, engineering and fabrication activities, Mild Steel Angles are the most commonly used steel structural item.
