Mild or low-carbon steel
Wuxi Qianqiao Strip Steel Co.,Ltd | Updated: Jul 26, 2017

Mild steel (steel containing a small percentage of carbon, strong and tough but not readily tempered), also known as plain-carbon steel and low-carbon steel, is now the most common form of steel because its price is relatively low while it provides material properties that are acceptable for many applications. Mild steel contains approximately 0.05-0.25% carbon making it malleable and ductile. Mild steel has a relatively low tensile strength, but it is cheap and easy to form; surface hardness can be increased through carburizing.

It is often used when large quantities of steel are needed, for exaples as structural steel. The density of mild steel is approximately 7.85 g/cm(7850 kg/m3 or 0.284 lb/in3) and the Young's modulus is 200 GPa (29,000,000 psi). 

Low-carbon steel suffer from yield-point runout where the material has two yield points. The first yield point (or upper yield point) is higher than the second and the yield drops dramatically afer the upper yield point. If a low-carbon steel is only stressed to some point between the upper and lower yield point then the surface develop luder bands. Low-carbon steels contain less carbon than other steels and are easier to cold-form, making them easier to handle.
