Mild steel metal box sections, or square tubing, are technically feasible for transporting potable water, but there are inherent challenges. The primary concern is corrosion, as mild steel can degrade over time when exposed to water, potentially compromising the tubing’s structure and introducing iron into the water, affecting taste, color and possibly staining fixtures. To counteract corrosion, the tubing’s interior may be lined or coated with materials like epoxy, but it’s vital to ensure these coatings are approved for potable water and won’t introduce contaminants. Furthermore, unlined steel pipes have been known to support bacterial growth. Regional standards and regulations may also dictate the materials suitable for potable water transport. Given these considerations, while mild steel can be employed, other materials like stainless steel, copper or certain plastics, which inherently offer better corrosion resistance and water quality, might be more advisable for such applications.
Certainly, mild steel metal box sections, often referred to as square tubing, can play a role in green building applications. Green building emphasises sustainability, energy efficiency and the responsible use of materials. Mild steel’s versatility, recyclability and strength-to-weight ratio make it an attractive choice. When sourced responsibly, steel can be a significant component of a building’s sustainable design. For instance, mild steel sections can be employed as structural elements in green buildings due to their durability. Furthermore, the recyclability of steel ensures that, at the end of its life cycle in a building, it can be repurposed or recycled into new steel products, minimising waste. However, it’s crucial to consider factors like the energy-intensive production of steel and potential corrosion. Proper treatments, coatings and insulation methods can offset some of these concerns. Using mild steel in conjunction with other sustainable materials and technologies can optimise its benefits in green building designs.
