The mild steel bars are used for tensile stress of Reinforced Cement Concrete slab beams in reinforced cement concrete work. This type of iron rod has a plain surface and has round sections of diameter from 6 to 50 mm.

Mild steel bars are manufactured in long lengths and can easily be cut and bent without damaging the iron rod.
