Steel Plates

To qualify as a plate, steel must be thicker than 1/4”. Typically produced by hot-rolling metal until it reaches the desired width, steel plate are intended for demanding applications in industrial, automotive, and agricultural fields. Like any other steel shapes, plate alloy choice will vary depending on the particular application of the job. At Industrial Metal Supply, we carry A36 and A786 plate. First, A36 is a general-purpose alloy with significant welding and forming qualities. The hot rolled steel process is also less expensive to produce than the cold drawn variety. Next, A786 steel plate is primarily referred to as steel diamond plate (also known as floor plate or tread plate), which offers a textured surface and is commonly used for skid-resistant flooring applications.
