At BlueScope Plate Supplies, we supply steel plate to different thicknesses and widths. Ideal for use in applications where strong structural framework and durability is required, our steel plate is used for a range of projects. Some uses for plate steel include strengthening foundations and bridges, as well as construction of larger materials and non-workable parts.
Steel plate is a material that is often used to create metal products. It can be manufactured to different thicknesses and widths by cutting and welding it together to create a final product.
The material gains its strength as high-temperature steel is rolled into sheets and layer upon layer of steel is compressed and forged into a single piece of steel until the final dimensions are achieved. As the flat steel sheet cools, it hardens into a usable piece of steel.
Steel plate is used in a variety of industries, from the construction of buildings to the creation of everyday items.
BlueScope Plate Supplies provides a range of TRU-SPEC® steel, consisting of a variety of structural plate grades that are rolled as coil on a Hot Strip Mill then cut-to-length. Our TRU-SPEC steel is most often used in the following applications: light and standard structural members, brake press forming applications, light poles, trailer and automotive components, and general fabrications. BlueScope invested in a coil plate processing line, which utilises stretch-levelling technology. TRU-SPEC® steel was developed to provide excellent product quality and consistency, and this industry leading standard produces a coil steel plate product that is consistently flat and memory free.
TRU-SPEC® steel is available in a range of structural grades, widths and lengths. Typically used in light and standard structural members, brake press forming applications, light poles, trailer and automotive components, general fabrications and galvanising applications.
TRU-SPEC® steel also produces floor plate and weathering steel. Floor plate has a raised pattern on one surface and weathering steel has enhanced weather resistant typically used in bridges, railway rolling stock, storage hoppers/bins, shipping containers and for architectural features.
The benefits of selecting TRU-SPEC® steel include:
• Guaranteed minimum strength levels
• Various levels of weldability, formability and ductility (Good and Excellent)
• Excellent for galvanising applications
• Enhanced weather resistance
