Mild steel is a type of carbon steel with a low amount of carbon – it is actually also known as “low carbon steel.”
We usually use mild steel when a client wants something to be powdercoated, that needs to be heavier than aluminium but cheaper than stainless. Our products range from signage, post boxes, suggestion boxes, and simple products like keytags, and clipboards.
Galvanized steel is regular steel sheets that have been coated in zinc to make them corrosion resistant. Regular steel is made of iron which will rust when exposed to moisture, either in the form of rain or ambient humidity. Over time rust will corrode a steel part to the point of failure.
Chromadek Galvanised Sheets is an epoxy coated, galvanized steel sheet used for interior and exterior signage applications.
We use chromadek as a backing substrate for outdoor signage and that can also easily be mounted on poles.
