Carbon Steel Plate

Carbon steel plate

Plate has been defined as a metal sheet with a thickness of .2300" or more; sheet is defined as metal that is thicker than foil and less than .2300". Due to its higher thickness, carbon steel plate is used for products that require durability and strength but do not require the lower weight of a thinner metal sheet.

Over the years, certain dimensional limitations have been established.  Carbon steel plate, compared to bar, strip and sheet, is defined as:

Width (in)More than .2300.2299 - .2031.2030 - .1800.1799 - .0499
