Aluminum Plate vs. Aluminum Sheet

Aluminum sheet and aluminum plate are essentially the same; the only proper distinction is their respective thickness. One of the main differences between Aluminum Plate and sheets is that sheet metal is under .249” thick, while plate metal is .250” and above. This distinction allows aluminum plate to be used for lighter-duty applications, while aluminum plate is reserved for heavier-duty applications that require a thicker cut.

Aluminum Sheet

  • Aluminum sheet is any aluminum sheet metal thicker than foil but thinner than 6mm
    • AL sheet comes in many forms, including diamond plate, expanded, perforated, and painted aluminum sheet
  • Primarily used for lighter duty applications

Aluminum Plate

  • Aluminum plate is any aluminum sheet metal that is thicker than 6mm
  • Primarily used for heavy-duty applications
