In general, aluminum sheet that is thicker than 6mm (0.25 inches) is considered to be thick.
1 What is thick aluminium plate?
2 Different series of thick aluminum plates
3 Size of thick aluminum plate
4 Weight calculation of aluminum thick plate
5 Specification parameters of thick aluminum alloy sheet
6 Which thickness and size of thick aluminum plate is popular?
7 Typical application of thick aluminum plate
Thick aluminum plate is relative to thin aluminum sheet;
The thickness of the thin aluminum sheet is 0.2-6mm, and the aluminum plate with a thickness greater than 6mm is called a thick aluminum plate;
According to the thickness, the aluminum plate is roughly divided into thin aluminum plate and thick aluminum plate;

The size of a thick aluminum sheet can vary widely, depending on its intended use and the specific requirements of the project or application.
Thick aluminum plates are typically available in a range of standard sizes and thicknesses.
Cutting aluminum sheet process
Common thicknesses for aluminum plates range from 1/4 inch (6.35 mm) to several inches thick, and standard plate sizes can range from 24 x 48 inches (61 x 122 cm) to 60 x 144 inches (152 x 366 cm) or larger.
The weight of a thick aluminum plate depends on its dimensions (length, width, and thickness) and the density of aluminum, which is approximately 2.7 grams per cubic centimeter or 0.098 pounds per cubic inch.
To calculate the weight of a thick aluminum plate, you can use the following formula:
Weight = Length x Width x Thickness x Density
Through the calculation of the formula, we can get the weight of thick aluminum sheet plate of different sizes and thicknesses. The following are the weights of common aluminum plate sizes and thicknesses:
|Thickness（mm）||Size (inch)||Weight (pound)|
|6mm thick aluminum plate（0.236 inch）||4×8 aluminum plate (1220mm x 2440mm)||0.740|
|4×10 aluminum plate (1220mm x 3048mm)||0.925|
|5×10 aluminum plate (1524mm x 3048mm)||1.156|
|8mm thick aluminum plate（0.315 inch）||4×8 Aluminum plate (1220mm x 2440mm)||0.988|
|4×10 aluminum plate (1220mm x 3048mm)||1.234|
|5×10 aluminum plate (1524mm x 3048mm)||1.543|
|10mm thick aluminum plate（0.398 inch）||4×8 aluminum plate (1220mm x 2440mm)||1.248|
