28 x 2mm round mild steel metal pipe is 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 by welding a steel strip 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.
Speciality Metals presents a reliable metal pipe option with their 28mm x 2mm Round Mild Steel Tubing. This ERW Round Tube comes in various lengths and is recyclable, making it an eco-friendly choice for those who are conscious about their impact on the environment. What sets this tubing apart is its excellent welding, forming, bending and machining abilities, allowing for a wide range of applications. Its versatility and durability make it ideal for industries such as construction, automotive and manufacturing. Not only is it an effective material for those industries, but it is also cost-effective, providing a reliable and affordable option for all your metal pipe needs.

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.
Mild steel tubes are renowned for their balance of performance and affordability, making them a popular choice across various industries. The primary reason for their cost-effectiveness is the relative abundance of the raw materials used in their production, mainly iron and carbon, as compared to metals like aluminum or the alloying elements found in stainless steel. Additionally, the manufacturing processes for mild steel are well-established and efficient, leading to lower production costs. While mild steel lacks the inherent corrosion resistance of materials like stainless steel, the cost to protect and maintain them, using methods like painting or galvanising, is often justified by the initial savings on material costs. However, it’s essential to factor in the potential costs of maintenance or replacement over the tube’s lifetime, especially in environments where corrosion is a significant concern. In many applications, the overall affordability, combined with its strength and formability, makes mild steel tubes a cost-effective option.
Mild steel tubing can come in various shapes, the most common being round, rectangular and square. Here’s a paragraph discussing the differences among these three types:
Mild steel round tubes, rectangular tubes and square tubes serve different purposes, primarily due to their distinct shapes. Round tubing is often used where uniform strength is required in all directions or where there’s a need for smooth finishes without corners, such as in the automotive and plumbing sectors. Their symmetrical cross-section makes them ideal for applications involving rotation, like axles or shafts. Rectangular and square tubes, on the other hand, are more commonly employed in structural applications where flat surfaces and right angles are beneficial. These tubes provide more surface area on one side, which can be advantageous for tasks like building frames or supports. Square tubes, with their equal width and height, can often bear loads in two directions equally, while rectangular tubes can be oriented to provide greater strength in a particular direction. Aesthetic and fitment reasons also play a role in choosing between these shapes. Ultimately, the choice between round, rectangular, or square tubing depends on the specific requirements and constraints of the application in question.
Mild steel round tubes possess a notable ductility, which enables them to be bent or shaped without significant deformation or weakening. This malleability arises from their balanced carbon content, allowing them to withstand various forming processes. Tube bending is a common practice in industries ranging from automotive to construction, where curved or angled components are essential. The bending process can be accomplished using different techniques, such as mandrel bending, rotary draw bending or roll bending, depending on the desired precision, radius and application. However, it’s crucial to ensure that the bending process is conducted under controlled conditions and with the correct equipment to prevent unwanted crimping, wrinkling or collapse of the tube walls. Properly bent mild steel tubes retain most of their original strength and structural integrity, making them a versatile choice for a wide array of applications.
