Mild steel wire

Mild steel wire

A wire which is made from iron and carbon is called mild steel wire. Ideally, this steel wire is well known and is quite demanded in engineering applications. Because they comprise high iron content, they also exhibit good magnetic properties, and this why it is called as ferromagnetic. Along with high iron content, it also comprises maximum of 0.16-0.29% carbon contents. They inherit high melting point ranging between 2642–2768-degree Fahrenheit. Because it contains low carbon content, it results into high melting point values.

Ms steel wire are not suitable for hardening. With respect to hardening, it can be done with the help of heating. You can also add sources of carbon which are chemically reactive, which will subsequently harden the surface layer. Adding to this, 2mm mild steel wire are non-recyclable. So once you purchase the steel wire, it cannot be re used for performing some other action.

When this wire is untreated, it does not exhibit good corrosion properties and to improve this or to treat this wire, we can provide surface protection by appropriate methods to the projects of any exposed parts.

Adding to this, external application make use of galvanised ms wire because of less maintenance and protected surface. They also have simplistic designs.

Based on their characteristics and the wide range of demands that meets your requirements and standards, black mild steel wire are used in variety of industries for manufacturing:

  • Fencing wires.
  • Wire nails.
  • Wire nettings.
  • Wire-ropes.
