We use the term ‘steel plate’ as a generic description for any kind of steel that is manufactured in the form of a plate. Steel can be combined with other metals to produce a steel alloy, which could be chosen for its increased resistance to corrosion or to make it stronger or lighter.
The thickness of steel plate can also vary widely from less than a quarter of an inch to several inches depending on the load or pressure that the steel is expected to bear. But whether pure steel or alloy, thick or thin, steel plates are an essential component in the construction of buildings, bridges, road vehicles and ships. The application of steel plates is virtually limitless and we can supply precisely the right kind for all your requirements.
