How Is Diamond Plate Made?

Diamond plate, also known as checker plate, tread plate  and Durbar floor plate, is a type of lightweight metal stock  with a regular pattern of raised diamonds or lines on one side, with the reverse side being featureless. Diamond plate is usually steel, stainless steel or aluminum. Steel types are normally made by hot rolling, although modern manufacturers also make a raised and pressed diamond design.Diamond plate  also known as tread plate or checkered plate  has many applications across all industries.

How Is Diamond Plate Made?

It is made in two ways.”Stamped” witch is really two giant rollers, one smooth the other with a stamped pattern. So the pressure of both of these  rolls embossed a pattern on one side and other side remains the same (smooth). The other way  is done with a electronic thermal machine that flash heats the product making it molten and then it cools in the shape.If you look at most diamond plate, you will notice that only one side of it features the diamond pattern. This is due to the fact that only one roller in the set has the diamond shaped pattern on it, so one side of the metal is exposed to it while the other is left smooth.For aluminum, this process “stamps” the pattern onto the plate, whereas with steel, hot rolling is generally used. This involves heating a slab of steel above its re crystallization temperature and then bringing it through a series of smooth rollers to its desired thickness. Heating the metal above its re crystallization temperature helps to prevent major alterations in mechanical properties due to work hardening. Once the material has reached its final shape, it is allowed to cool slowly.
