What is the Difference Between Sheet Metal and Plate Metal?

Sheet metal is metal formed into thin and flat pieces. It comes in a variety of shapes, sizes, and thicknesses. The thickness is what differentiates sheet metal from plate metal. Sheet metal, like sheet steel, is metal thinner than 6mm but thicker than metal foil which is typically not thicker than 0.2 mm. Plate metal is the thickest sheet metal with a 6mm or greater thickness.

Uses of Sheet and Plate Metal

Due to their difference in thickness, sheet and plate metal each have different uses. For instance, the thinnest type of sheet metal, foil metal, is often used as aluminum or gold foil and not much more than that. Sheet and plate metal have more uses.
