A steel plate refers to a rectangle of flat steel that is thicker than “Sheet Steel”. Sheet steel is thin up to a maximum of approximately ¼” (6mm) in thickness; it is also available in rolls, coils. Steel plates over 4” are known as “Slabs”.
Steel plates can be used for walls, ceilings, and liners in truck bodies. They are also versatile enough to be cut, welded, and formed into various other products.
Titus Steelworks offers steel plates in various sizes and thickness, from 1/8” (3mm) 48 x 96 up to 3” x 96” x 288”.
Different Grades of Steel Plate
Steel plates are available in several different grades such as stainless, high or low carbon, abrasion resistant, and alloy. All of these products have a broad range of different properties and uses.
How Steel Plates are Made
Steel plates are created through a steel making process that entails the continuous casting and then rolling of large billets or ingots of steel. A billet is first heated and then placed in a rolling mill in which it is rolled back and forth until reaching the desired thickness. Following this step, the steel is then cut to length and trimmed.
After a steel plate has been formed, it undergoes additional processes such as quenching and tempering to achieve a series of desired mechanical properties, which include hardness, tensile, yield, elongation, and work-hardening.
Titus Steelworks’ Products
Titus Steelworks only works with and sells speciality steel plates that have exceptional wear and work hardening properties. These abrasion resistant steels include ENDURA, ENDURA Dual (with titanium carbides), Manganese, AR 500, and AR 600.
These are sophisticated abrasion resistant steels that work-harden, meaning that the more you work them, the harder they get. Titus Steelworks offers plates “as is” or fabricated into specific parts.
