WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MILD AND CORTEN STEEL?
The main difference between corten steel and mild steel is the amount of carbon in each material. Corten steel has a higher carbon content than mild steel. This makes corten steel more durable and corrosion-resistant than its mild counterpart. Additionally, corten steel is more resistant to extreme temperatures, making it ideal for outdoor applications where the temperature fluctuates throughout the year.
Mild steel has a lower carbon content than corten, which makes it softer and more malleable. Its low carbon content also makes it less resistant to corrosion than corten.
