In most metals but not all, plate generally starts at 0.188″ (3/16″) thick. Due to its thickness, plate is often used for structural applications such as heavy equipment manufacturing, bridge and building erection.
Plate is measured in inches and not gauges, like sheet product.
|These are some of the reasons why stainless plate is valuable in so many industries :
|1) Excellent Resistance to corrosion, especially oxidation and sulfidation
2) Avoidance of product contamination
3) Good Resistance to abrasion & erosion
4) Suitable for necessary fabrication processes and also its is easy to clean
5) Low weight yet high strength
