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 Hexagon Bars are precisely shaped for items or machines that require accurate pieces. One of the most common places they are used is conveyor tables.
Hexagonal Bars are usually easy to drill and form, making them common in braces, ornamental and interior works
