STEEL PLATES BASICS

DEFINITION

A steel plate is a broad and flat piece of steel that is produced in a variety of thicknesses and can be used in a multitude of applications. Unlike steel sheets, steel plates are thicker and can be used in structures and constructions requiring higher strength and durability. The thickness of a steel plate is typically greater than 3/16 inches (about 5 mm), distinguishing it from thinner steel sheets. The dimensions of steel plates can vary widely, accommodating needs ranging from heavy machinery manufacturing to the creation of large structural components.

STEEL PLATE VS. STEEL SHEET

The primary difference between steel plates and steel sheets lies in their thickness and their intended use across various applications. Both are made from steel, a versatile and widely used construction and manufacturing material, but their specific characteristics and applications distinguish them.

Steel Sheets
Steel Sheets

Thickness

  • Steel Plate: Steel plates are thicker than steel sheets, generally starting at a thickness of 1/4 inch (about 6.35 mm) and can go up to several inches thick. The exact point at which steel becomes classified as a plate rather than a sheet can vary slightly between different industries and standards, but 1/4 inch is a commonly accepted starting point.

  • Steel Sheet: Steel sheets are thinner than plates, usually less than 3/16 inches (about 4.76 mm). Sheets can be as thin as a few thousandths of an inch. Steel sheets are often classified further based on their thickness, with those thinner than .01 inch being called “foil” and those between .01 inch and .25 inch being referred to as “sheet.”

Applications

  • Steel Plate: Due to their thickness and durability, steel plates are used in applications requiring structural strength and the ability to withstand high pressures, heavy loads, or impact. Common uses include the construction of buildings and bridges, shipbuilding, and the manufacture of heavy machinery and vehicles.

  • Steel Sheet: Steel sheets are used in a wide range of applications that require less structural strength compared to applications for steel plates. They are commonly used in automotive bodies, household appliances, metal roofing, manufacturing of metal containers, and in the fabrication of ductwork and other HVAC components.

Manufacturing Process

Both steel plates and steel sheets are produced via a rolling process, either through hot rolling or cold rolling, which determines their final mechanical properties and surface finish. Hot rolling produces steel plates and sheets with a rough surface but makes them easier to work in terms of cutting and welding. Cold rolling is used to produce steel sheets with a smoother finish and tighter tolerances, making them suitable for applications where precision and aesthetics are important.

Flexibility and Formability

  • Steel Plate: The greater thickness of steel plates makes them less flexible compared to steel sheets. They require more force to bend or shape, making them more suitable for applications where rigidity and durability are critical.

  • Steel Sheet: Steel sheets are more flexible and easier to work with, especially in folding, cutting, and shaping processes. This makes them ideal for applications requiring intricate shapes and designs.

BASIC SPECIFICATIONS

Specifications for steel plates are detailed descriptions of the material’s properties, dimensions, and quality standards they must meet. These specifications are crucial for ensuring that the steel plates are suitable for their intended applications, providing a basis for comparison among materials and ensuring compliance with regulatory and safety standards. The specifications can vary widely depending on the type of steel, its intended use, and the standards set by different organizations and industries. Here are some key aspects typically covered in steel plate specifications:

1. Material Grade

The grade of steel indicates its chemical composition and mechanical properties, such as strength, ductility, and toughness. Different grades are suited for different applications, for example, structural steel (like ASTM A36) for construction, or stainless steel grades (like ASTM A240 Type 304) for corrosion resistance.

2. Thickness

Steel plates come in various thicknesses, typically measured in millimeters or inches. The thickness is a critical specification as it directly impacts the plate’s strength and suitability for specific applications.

3. Width and Length

The dimensions of a steel plate, including its width and length, are specified. These dimensions can vary greatly, with some plates measuring over several meters to accommodate large-scale applications.

4. Mechanical Properties

This includes tensile strength, yield strength, elongation, and impact resistance. These properties are determined through standardized tests and indicate how the steel will behave under different loads and in various conditions.

5. Chemical Composition

Specifications include the allowable concentrations of carbon, manganese, silicon, phosphorus, sulfur, and other alloying elements. The chemical composition influences the steel’s mechanical properties and its resistance to corrosion and wear.

6. Surface Finish

Surface finish specifications address the appearance, texture, and cleanliness of the steel plate. Some applications require smooth, clean surfaces free of scale, such as cold-rolled or pickled and oiled plates.

7. Manufacturing Process

Specifications may also detail the manufacturing process (e.g., hot-rolled, cold-rolled, forged) as it affects the final properties of the steel plate.

8. Certifications and Standards

Steel plates must often meet standards set by organizations such as ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials), ISO (International Organization for Standardization), and EN (European Norm). Certifications can also include compliance with specific industry regulations, such as those for pressure vessels or marine applications.

9. Testing Requirements

This includes the types of tests the steel plates must undergo to verify their mechanical properties, chemical composition, and other characteristics. Common tests include tensile tests, Charpy V-notch impact tests, and ultrasonic testing.

COMMON MATERIAL GRADES

Steel plates come in a wide variety of types, each tailored for specific applications and environments. Their differentiation is often based on composition, manufacturing process, finish, and specific use cases. Here’s a rundown of some common types of steel plates and their typical applications:

1. Carbon Steel Plates

  • Low Carbon Steel Plates: Also known as mild steel plates, these contain a lower percentage of carbon and are more ductile, making them easy to form. They are used in body panels for automobiles, structural sections for buildings, bridges, and other infrastructure.
  • Medium Carbon Steel Plates: Containing a medium level of carbon compared to other carbon steels, these plates offer a balance between strength and ductility. They are used in manufacturing gears, rails, and structural steel components.
  • High Carbon Steel Plates: With a higher carbon content, these plates are harder and stronger but less ductile. They are used in high-strength applications such as cutting tools and machinery parts.

2. Alloy Steel Plates

Alloy steel plates contain other elements such as manganese, silicon, nickel, titanium, copper, chromium, and aluminum in varying proportions. These elements enhance specific properties like strength, hardness, durability, and resistance to corrosion, making alloy steel plates suitable for use in pipelines, automotive parts, electrical motors, and construction machinery.

3. Stainless Steel Plates

Stainless steel is well-known for its corrosion resistance, provided by a significant amount of chromium (at least 10.5%). Stainless steel plates are used in applications requiring corrosion resistance, such as in chemical plants, food processing plants, and marine applications.

4. Tool Steel Plates

Tool steel is characterized by its hardness, abrasion resistance, and ability to retain shape at high temperatures. These plates are used to make tools like drill bits, dies, molds, and hammers, which require a high resistance to wear and tear.

5. Clad Steel Plates

Clad steel plates are composite plates made by bonding two or more different types of metals. This process combines the beneficial properties of both (or all) metals, such as the corrosion resistance of stainless steel with the strength of carbon steel. Clad plates are used in pressure vessels, chemical tankers, and refineries.

6. Weathering Steel Plates

Also known as Corten steel, weathering steel exhibits increased resistance to atmospheric corrosion compared to other steels. This is because the steel forms a protective layer on its surface under the influence of the weather. It’s commonly used in bridges, rail cars, and architectural structures where maintenance is challenging.

7. Quenched and Tempered Steel Plates

These steel plates undergo a heat treatment process that involves heating to a high temperature, followed by rapid cooling (quenching) and reheating to a moderate temperature (tempering). The result is a steel plate with increased strength and toughness. They are used in structural applications that require high strength, such as in military vehicles and in construction machinery.

TYPES BY MANUFACTURING PROCESS

The types of steel plates can also be categorized based on their manufacturing process. Each manufacturing process confers distinct characteristics and properties to the steel plate, making it suitable for various applications. Here are some of the common steel plate types classified by their manufacturing process:

1. Hot Rolled Steel Plates

  • Process: These steel plates are made by heating steel slabs and then rolling them at a high temperature above the steel’s recrystallization temperature. This process allows the steel to be formed into various shapes and sizes.
  • Characteristics: Hot-rolled steel plates have rough surfaces and loose tolerances but are known for their malleability and ease of welding. They are typically cheaper than their cold-rolled counterparts.
  • Applications: Construction, railroad tracks, and general fabrication.

2. Cold Rolled Steel Plates

  • Process: Cold rolling involves processing hot rolled steel plates further, by cooling at room temperature and then rolling them. The process provides a closer tolerance and a smoother surface.
  • Characteristics: Cold-rolled steel plates have a smooth finish, higher strength, and tighter dimensional tolerances than hot-rolled plates. However, they are more brittle and more expensive to produce.
  • Applications: Automotive parts, appliances, metal furniture, and construction.

3. Forged Steel Plates

  • Process: Forging steel involves shaping metal using localized compressive forces, like hammering or pressing. Forged steel plates are formed under high pressure, which alters the grain structure of the steel, enhancing its toughness and durability.
  • Characteristics: Forged steel plates are known for their strength, toughness, and resistance to wear and impact. They also have a fine-grain structure.
  • Applications: Machinery parts, tools, and applications requiring structural integrity under high stress.

4. Clad Steel Plates

  • Process: Cladding involves the bonding of two or more different types of metals together, typically through rolling or explosion welding. The process combines the beneficial properties of both metals.
  • Characteristics: Clad steel plates offer a combination of properties, such as the strength of the base metal with the corrosion resistance of the cladding material.
  • Applications: Pressure vessels, shipbuilding, and pipelines.

5. Quenched and Tempered Steel Plates

  • Process: These steel plates undergo a heat treatment process involving quenching (rapid cooling from a high temperature) and tempering (reheating to a lower temperature and then cooling). This process enhances the strength and toughness of the steel.
  • Characteristics: Quenched and tempered steel plates exhibit high strength, toughness, and wear resistance. They are less brittle than standard hardened steel.
  • Applications: Military vehicles, construction machinery, and wear-resistant applications.

Difference Steel Plate vs. Rolled Steel Plate

The terms “steel plate” and “rolled steel plates” often create some confusion due to their overlapping usage in the industry. However, the distinction generally lies in the context of how the steel has been processed and its intended application. Let’s clarify the difference:

Steel Plate

The term “steel plate” refers broadly to any flat steel product that is thicker than a sheet, usually greater than 1/4 inch (6 mm) in thickness. Steel plates can be manufactured through a variety of processes including casting, forging, and rolling. They come in a wide range of sizes and grades, each suited to different applications, from construction and shipbuilding to manufacturing heavy machinery and pressure vessels. The term is very generic and doesn’t specify the manufacturing process used to produce the steel plate.

Rolled Steel Plates

“Rolled steel plates,” on the other hand, specifically refer to steel plates that have been produced by rolling, one of the most common methods for steel plate production. This category includes both hot-rolled and cold-rolled steel plates:

  • Hot Rolled Steel Plates: These are produced by heating steel slabs and rolling them at high temperatures where the steel is in a pliable state. This process allows for easier shaping and forming of the steel into large plates. Hot-rolled steel plates are typically used where precise shapes and tolerances are not required.

  • Cold Rolled Steel Plates: This process takes hot rolled steel and processes it further at room temperature to achieve closer dimensional tolerances, a smoother surface finish, and improved strength. Cold-rolled steel plates are often used in applications requiring more precise dimensions and better surface conditions.

Key Differences

  1. Manufacturing Process: The main difference is in the manufacturing process—while “steel plate” can refer to any thick, flat piece of steel regardless of how it’s made, “rolled steel plates” specifically denote plates produced by rolling.

  2. Precision and Finish: Rolled steel plates, especially cold-rolled ones, tend to have closer tolerances, a smoother finish, and possibly higher strength due to work hardening compared to steel plates that may be produced by other processes.

  3. Applications: The choice between steel plate and rolled steel plates depends on the application’s specific requirements, including the needed size, strength, surface quality, and tolerances.

WEIGHT OF STEEL PLATES

THE 3 DIMENSIONS TO CONSIDER

The three dimensions of steel plates are:

  • Length (in meters or inches/feet)
  • Width (in meters or inches/feet)
  • Thickness (in millimeters or inches)
steel plates dimensions
steel plates dimensions

These dimensions are used to calculate the weight (in kg. or Lbs.) of steel plates, as explained below.

In a hurry? Calculate the weight of steel plates online using our online calculator!

WEIGHT CALCULATION FORMULA

Plates in Metric Sizes

The weight of steel plates is typically calculated based on their thickness, width, length, and the density of steel. The standard formula used for calculating the weight of a steel plate in kilograms is:

Weight (kgs.) = Thickness × Width × Length × Density of steel

For steel, the density is commonly assumed to be 7,850 kg/m³ (or 7.85 g/cm³). However, this can slightly vary depending on the specific composition and grade of steel (see below the density of the most common steel plate grades, i.e. carbon steel, stainless steel, alloy steel, and tool steel).

The dimensions (thickness, width, and length) must be in meters to match the density units (kg/m³) for the calculation to result in kilograms. If you have the dimensions in different units, such as millimeters, they should be converted to meters first.

For example, to calculate the weight of a steel plate with a thickness of 10mm (0.01 m), a width of 1m, and a length of 2m:

Weight=0.01 m×1 m×2 m×7,850 kg/m3=157 kg

Plates in Imperial Sizes

Steel plates are generally manufactured in standardized widths (36″, 48″, and 60″ the most common) and lengths (96″, 120″, and 144″).

To calculate the weight in Lbs. of a specific imperial steel plate the following formula shall be used:

Weight (Lbs) = Weight (lb/ft2) * Width (ft) * Length (ft)

The Weight (lb/ft2) by plate thickness is shown in this table (based on carbon steel material density):

DENSITY OF STEEL BY GRADE

The density of steel varies slightly depending on its composition and the specific grade, but for most purposes in engineering and construction, it is considered to average around 7,850 kg/m³ (or 7.85 g/cm³). This value is widely used for calculating the weight of steel products and structures in various applications. However, the addition of different alloys can slightly alter the density.

Here are the densities for some common steel types and grades:

Carbon Steel

  • Low Carbon Steel: Approximately 7,850 kg/m³
  • Medium Carbon Steel: Approximately 7,850 kg/m³
  • High Carbon Steel: Approximately 7,850 kg/m³

The slight variations in carbon content among these types of steel do not significantly affect their density.

Alloy Steels

Alloy steels incorporate elements like chromium, nickel, molybdenum, silicon, manganese, and vanadium, which can slightly influence their density. However, in most cases, the density remains close to the average for carbon steel, around 7,850 kg/m³, because these alloying elements are used in relatively small amounts.

Stainless Steel

The density of stainless steel varies depending on the specific alloy and its composition. Generally, it ranges from 7,700 kg/m³ to 8,000 kg/m³. For example:

  • Austenitic Stainless Steels (e.g., 304, 316): Approximately 7,900 kg/m³ to 8,000 kg/m³
  • Ferritic Stainless Steels (e.g., 430): Approximately 7,700 kg/m³
  • Martensitic Stainless Steels (e.g., 410): Approximately 7,750 kg/m³

Tool Steels

Tool steels, used in the manufacture of tool bits and cutting instruments, have a density similar to that of carbon and alloy steels, averaging around 7,850 kg/m³.
