Yes, mild steel round tubing can be welded. Mild steel is known for its excellent weldability, making it a popular choice for welding applications. Welding mild steel tubing most commonly involves MIG (Metal Inert Gas) or TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas) welding. By using these processes, strong and durable weld joints can be created, enabling various structures and components to be fabricated. It’s important to follow proper welding procedures and ensure the correct welding parameters for successful and reliable welds.
We recently published a detailed article on TIG welding. This may be very useful in understanding the process.
No, none of our tubing comes with a protective coating.
Yes, 70mm x 2mm mild steel tube can be used in structural applications. Due to their strength, durability, and versatility, mild steel tubes are often used for structural purposes. The dimensions 70mm x 2mm indicate a tube with an outer diameter of 70mm and a wall thickness of 2mm. Mild steel tubes of this size are ideal for building load-bearing structures such as frames, supports, handrails, and other structural elements. It’s essential, however, to take into account the specific requirements of the project, such as load-bearing capacity and structural design considerations.
A mild steel tube can withstand high pressure, but its capacity to do so is largely determined by its wall thickness, diameter, steel grade, and construction method. Typically, the thicker the wall of the tube, the higher the pressure it can handle. You should, however, consult with the tube’s manufacturer or refer to its specifications to find out its exact pressure rating. Consider using a mild steel tube for a high-pressure application only if it meets the necessary standards and has been tested.
The use of mild steel tube for plumbing applications is technically possible, but it may not be the best option. The primary concern is its susceptibility to corrosion, especially when in constant contact with water. Over time, this could cause rusting and compromise water quality. Other materials, such as copper or PVC, might be more suitable for potable water systems where water integrity is critical. However, for non-potable systems where water quality isn’t a primary concern, mild steel may be considered, provided protective measures like internal coatings are applied to minimise corrosion.
Check out our recent article about the fundamentals of welding with metal for a deeper dive into the subject. We have also recently written an article explaining how to cut metal, which is well worth a read before you select the metal that best suits your requirement.
We are also adding product videos to our YouTube channel. Our goal for our blogs, videos and help guides is to answer as many questions as possible to help to explain the possibilities of metal materials to our customers.
