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 Flat Bar Bright EN3B is a flat shaped EN3B Bright Mild Steel bar.
EN3B is a general engineering steel which is suitable in applications where heavy stresses and heat treatment are not involved.
It is a bright drawn / turned mild steel with good machinability but poor hardenability, and is used in a variety of general engineering applications.
EN3B can be case hardened and is normally used in the supplied condition. The material promotes good weldability characteristics.
