Hey there! Let’s talk about metal tubes, specifically 19.05 x 1.5mm Round Mild Steel Metal Tubes by Speciality Metals. Not only do these tubes come in various lengths, but they are also durable, versatile and cost-effective. Plus, they are easily recyclable! These metal tubes have excellent welding, forming, bending and machining abilities, making them an ideal choice for a wide range of applications. From DIY projects to professional construction, these tubes have got you covered. So, why not give them a try?
19.05 x 1.5mm round mild steel metal tubes are used in many structural and engineering applications. The size refers to the outside diameter and then the thickness of the wall.
ERW means Electric Resistance Welded. ERW tube is made when steel strip is welded to form a tube shape. The tube is continuously seam welded which means that there is a neat weld running along the inside of the tube.
Mild steel round tube is widely used in a variety of applications and also comes in both square and rectangular options.
Metal tubes are an essential component in various industries, and Speciality Metals offers the 19.05 x 1.5mm Round Mild Steel Metal Tubes. These tubes come in various lengths to fit specific requirements, making them a versatile solution for multiple applications. Not only are they durable, but their cost-effective price point is a significant advantage for businesses. Additionally, these tubes are recyclable, contributing to the overall sustainability of operations. Their excellent welding, forming, bending and machining abilities make them an ideal choice for various manufacturing processes. With all these features, it’s no surprise why metal tubes are a popular choice in the engineering world.

Mild steel is a quality strong metal. However it is not rust proof and may do so over time. Please use galvanised or stainless steel if you need resistance to rust. If this metal tube does show signs of rust then simply remove this with WD40 or fine sanding.
The grade of plain steel that we have available has mechanical properties that provide excellent machinability, formability and weldability.
Mild steel can be welded and it’s also suitable for painting. Mild steel is a magnetic grade of metal. Magnets will stick to this sheet but it is not itself a magnet.
Measuring the size of a mild steel tube involves determining its outer diameter, inner diameter, wall thickness and length. Here’s a step-by-step guide to accurately measure a mild steel tube:
Outer Diameter (OD):
Inner Diameter (ID):
It’s crucial to make sure the measuring tools (like calipers, micrometers and measuring tapes) are calibrated and accurate. If you need precise measurements for specific applications, consider investing in high-quality measuring instruments and ensure they are maintained and calibrated periodically. Additionally, always refer to manufacturer specifications when available, as they can provide exact measurements for the tubes they produce.
The difference in strength between square and round mild steel tubes is not purely based on their shapes but on how they respond to loads and the specific application. Here’s a breakdown of the differences in strength characteristics between the two shapes:
Material Usage and Weight:
Applications and Practical Considerations:
Aesthetics and Fabrication:
In conclusion, the inherent strength differences between square and round mild steel tubes depend on the specific application and loading conditions. It’s essential to consider the type of load (torsional, bending, axial, etc.) and the direction of the load when deciding between the two shapes.
Mild steel tube’s response to chemicals largely hinges on the corrosive nature of the specific chemical and the environment in which the interaction takes place. Mild steel, being an iron-based material, is prone to rust when exposed to moisture, especially in the presence of corrosive agents. Many chemicals can accelerate the corrosion process. For instance, acids, even weak ones like acetic acid, can lead to rapid oxidation and degradation of mild steel. Similarly, environments with high salinity or chemicals like chlorides can intensify rusting. In alkaline conditions, mild steel tends to corrode at a slower rate than in acidic environments. However, certain alkaline compounds, in the presence of oxygen, can also corrode steel. Protective coatings and treatments, such as paint, epoxy or galvanisation, can safeguard mild steel tubes from chemical attacks, extending their lifespan in chemically aggressive environments. When considering mild steel tubes for applications with potential chemical exposure, it’s paramount to have a clear understanding of the specific chemicals involved and take preventive measures accordingly.
