Engineering Steel is a steel that has had small amounts of one or more alloying elements (other than carbon) such as such as manganese, silicon, nickel, titanium, copper, chromium and aluminum added. This produces specific properties that are not found in regular carbon steel.
Engineering Steels are workhorses of industry because of their economical cost, wide availability, ease of processing, and good mechanical properties. Alloy steels are generally more responsive to heat and mechanical treatments than carbon steels.
Mild Steel Expanded Sheet, also known as expanded metal is essentially a piece of steel that has been cut and stretched into a mesh with diamond-shaped spaces (however many other patterns exist).
Mild Steel Expanded Sheet is typically used in applications where it is essential to have water, light, or air pass through.
Typical Applications: Structural Steel Works, Bridge Components, Components for Offshore Structures, Power Plants, Mining and Earth-Moving Equipment, Load-Handling Equipment, Wind Tower Components
