Home » Blog » How thick is 8 gauge aluminum sheet?

We not only supply a large number of No. 8 aluminum sheets, but also provide aluminum sheets of popular metal gauge such as 11 gauge, 12 gauge, 14 gauge, 16 gauge, 18 gauge, 30 gauge, etc.

If you want to know how thick is 8 gauge aluminum sheet, you need to understand what the word ‘gauge‘ means firstly.

What is metal gauge?

Sheet metal gauges/gauges are indications of the standard thickness of specific sheet metal materials such as steel, aluminum, and copper.

In general, the higher the gauge number, the thinner the metal (does not apply to zinc).

Gauges are independent of those metric measurement systems, and the gauge conversion table can be used to determine the actual thickness of sheet metal in inches or millimeters.

Metal Gauge chart

If you want to know how many mm or inches different gauges represent, you need to consult the metal gauge chart.

A metal gauge chart will contain the gauge number and corresponding thickness in inches or millimeters, and you can use the chart to confirm specific metal thicknesses.

Also, the same gauge numbers for different metal materials represent different thicknesses. For example, 19-gauge stainless steel is 0.0418 inches thick, and 19-gauge aluminum is 0.0456 inches thick.
