Con-Tech’s world-class suppliers, many of which are ISO certified, offer different sizes and gauges of carbon steel plate to meet your specific needs. We supply carbon steel plate, steel floor plate and coil plate in many grades, widths, and thicknesses from sources worldwide.
Con-Tech is constantly searching the marketplace for new steel sources as global steelmaking capacity has increased in recent years. Asia and the Middle East are leading the way but, Bolivia, Namibia and Mozambique are also expected to see the start-up of their first steel plants during the 2021-23 period.
Carbon steel changes depending upon the amount of carbon present. Low-carbon steel is softer and less brittle than higher-carbon varieties. Furthermore, low- carbon steel is the most common and cost-effective form and is malleable and ductile but has a relatively low tensile strength while medium carbon steel balances ductility and strength with good wear resistance. High-carbon steel is brittle, but possesses a very high strength, extreme hardness, resistance to wear, and moderate ductility, making it better able to be deformed without actually breaking.
Con-Tech’s carbon steel floor plate is a corrosion, abrasion and skid-resistant thick sheet of steel with raised lugs in various patterns. It is frequently used as a flooring or walking surface in industrial settings as it is long lasting, slip resistant and can withstand the wear of forklifts and heavy pallets.
Steel floor plate is frequently diamond shape, called “diamond plate” which increase traction in locations where slip hazards are a potential risk. Diamond plate is chosen for both traction and cosmetic appeal. Our steel floor plate requires minimal maintenance which makes it a relatively inexpensive application for innumerable locations.
Con-Tech’s steel floor plating is extremely versatile. Our steel floor plate is used as industrial flooring and in a wide variety of other applications. Con-Tech steel floor plating can be found in shipping docks, staircases, steps, ladders, ramps, elevators, walkways, corridors, trailers and trucks, trench covers, garage and storage rooms and emergency and fire trucks, to name a few industrial uses. On the cosmetic side, steel floor plate can be used in innumerable uses like displays, signs, counters, and toolboxes.
We can deliver carbon steel plate, floor plate and coil plate through several ports, to almost anywhere in North and Central America. Con-Tech’s experienced personnel help find solutions to your carbon steel plate, floor plate and coil plate problems and work with you to find the right steel for your application.
