Steel Specifications

Previously, the British specifications for steel were described using the letters “En”, followed by a number. This number had no relationship with the mechanical properties of steel or the composition.

Since then, the British system has changed, and “BS 970” is now used. The first three digits describe the content of alloying elements and are followed by letters A, H, or M. These stand for “analysis based”, “hardenability based”, or “mechanical properties based”, respectively. Finally, the last two numbers after the letter refer to the carbon points.

Mild steel’s carbon content sits anywhere between 0.16% and 0.29%, and its melting point can be anywhere from 1450 °C to 1520 °C. Due to its high melting temperature, it’s more ductile when heated, which adds to its machinability and formability. Despite this, mild steel isn’t suitable for thorough hardening.
