Mild Steel Plate Weight Chart

Mild Steel Plate Weight Chart

Mild Steel Plate has low amount of carbon and comes in various thickness. Most of the manufacturers produce mild steel sheets and plates in thickness from 3 mm to 100 mm. These plates come in width from 1200 mm to 2400 mm. These low carbon steel plates having carbon content 0.05% to 0.15%. The most common manufacturing process of MS plates is hot rolled process in which the mild steel slabs are heated up to 900 degrees Celsius and flatten by rollers in different thickness. So, to measure the weight of MS plate by thickness in KG is bit laborious and time taking job. Where are so many weight calculators are available online, in which you can add thickness, grade and width so you can get the weight. But to make it quicker and easier we prepared a weight chart and published here so you can find precise weight of mild steel plates in KG of all thickness and standard sizes.

MS Sheet Thickness in mm and Size Chart

The major difference between thickness of MS plate and MS sheet is approx 1.8 mm. Ms plate thickness start from 3mm and Ms sheet thickness start from 1.2mm and goes up to 100mm. Width of MS sheet start from 1200mm to 3000 mm also length from 2500 mm to 12000 mm. Thickness of Mild steel perforated sheets starts from 0.4mm to 5mm. However few Mills make in custom sizes and thickness also. Sizes of mild steel sheets differ as per manufacturing process like Hot Rolled Ms sheet sizes start from length 2500 mm to 12000 mm, width 900 mm to 2000 mm and thickness 1.6 to 25mm whereas Cold rolled sheets length 2000 mm to 2500 mm, Width 1000 mm to 1250 mm and thickness 0.5mm to 3.2mm. Find below the standard sizes as well customised dimensions of H/R and C/R Sheets and Plates.

MS Plate E250 grade vs E350

Difference between Grade 250 Plate and Grade 350 Mild Steel Plate by Properties

MS Plate E250 grade vs E350

In Mild steel plates few grades which are more common Grade 250, Grade 350, Grade 200 and Grade 450. The basic difference in grade 250 and Gr 350 is that both are having different yield strength. In Grade 250 MPa is 250 and in Grade 350 MPa is 350. Both Grades are categorised by strength. Gr 250 Mild steel plates are majorly used in structural applications, Storage tanks and normal fabrication purpose. Whereas Grade 350 Mild steel is also known as high strength steel and comes in the family of structural steel. Grade 350 is majorly used in High rise structures where more strength is required and bridges.
