XLERPLATE® steel

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.
