Yes, 5mm thick mild steel sheet metal plate is suitable for welding. Various welding techniques, including MIG welding, TIG welding, and arc welding, can be easily used to join mild steel. Due to its compatibility with different welding processes and its ability to form strong and durable weld joints, it is commonly used in welding applications. However, it’s always important to follow proper welding procedures and ensure the correct welding parameters for a successful weld.
We recently published an article on the fundamentals of welding with sheet metal.
No, our mild steel sheet metal does not have a protective coating. Aluminium and stainless steel do as they tend to be used for applications where aesthetics are more of a factor.
The use of mild steel sheet metal outdoors is possible, but it is important to take some precautions in order to minimise or prevent corrosion from occurring. In the event that mild steel is exposed to moisture and harsh weather conditions, it is susceptible to rusting. The mild steel sheet metal should be protected from corrosion by applying a suitable protective coating or by painting it with a suitable protective coating to prevent corrosion. This coating acts as a barrier between the metal and the environment, helping to prevent the formation of rust. If mild steel sheet metal is used outdoors on a regular basis, such as cleaning and reapplying the protective coating as necessary, regular maintenance can also help extend the lifespan of the mild steel sheet metal.
