Sample service: we can provide free samples.
What are the classifications of aluminum plates based on thickness?
Sheet (Aluminum Plate): 0.15-2.0mm
Regular Plate (Aluminum Plate): 2.0-6.0mm
Medium Plate (Aluminum Plate): 6.0-25.0mm
Thick Plate (Aluminum Plate): 25-200mm
Super Thick Plate: Above 200mm
Therefore, a 1/4-inch aluminum plate falls into the category of medium-thick aluminum plate.
The millimeter equivalent of 1/4 inch is:
1 inch = 25.4 millimeters
1/4 inch = 6.35 millimeters
How to calculate the weight of a 1/4-inch aluminum plate?
Weight per unit area of aluminum plate:
Calculation formula: Aluminum plate weight = Thickness * Width * Length * Density.
Aluminum plate density: The density of pure aluminum is 2.7×10kg/m3 or 2.7g/cm3.
Example: Assuming an aluminum plate is 1000mm long, 1000mm wide, and 6.35mm thick.
Volume (V): V = 0.00635 * 1 * 1
Aluminum plate weight: V * 2.7×10kg/m3 = 17.145kg.。
1 4 aluminum plate 4×8 weight calculation：
The length of the aluminum plate is known to be: 8 feet = 2440 mm
Width: 4 feet = 1220 mm
Thickness: 1 × 4 inches = 6.35 mm
Aluminum density: 2.7g/cm3
Therefore, the weight of 1/4 aluminum plate 4 × 8 is: 2440*1220*6.35*2.7g/cm3=49.3776kg
Other popular sizes of aluminum plates include:
2mm aluminum plate
3mm aluminum plate
5mm aluminum plate
6mm aluminum plate
8mm aluminum plate
10mm aluminum plate
12mm aluminum plate
4x10 aluminum plate
5x10 aluminum plate

What is the price of 1/4 aluminum plate?
The calculation method for aluminum plate prices is actually quite simple:
Aluminum plate unit price = Aluminum ingot price + Processing fee
The processing fee varies for aluminum plates in different alloy states. Taking 1060 as an example, assuming the current unit price for 1-4mm thick 1060 aluminum plate is approximately 14 yuan/kg or 14, 000 yuan/ton, with a processing fee of 2600 yuan/ton. Therefore, the price of 1060 aluminum plate is 14, 000 yuan/ton + 2600 yuan/ton = 16, 600 yuan/ton.
To calculate the price per square meter of aluminum plate, you can multiply the weight per square meter by the unit price.

Chalco aluminum plate standard export packaging
Aluminum plates are secured with paper clips or laminated to ensure the surface integrity and absence of scratches. They are further protected with plastic film (HDPE, PVC, PE, or PET, etc.) or wrapped in hard kraft paper to guard against moisture and rain, ensuring that the aluminum plates remain clean and free from dirt during transportation (each package contains moisture-absorbing desiccants to maintain cleanliness and prevent contamination during transit, especially in regions with high rainfall such as East and South China).
For added protection during transportation, aluminum plates are mounted on wooden supports and reinforced with steel straps to prevent collisions and ensure the geometric shape of the plates remains unchanged.
For exported products, we utilize wooden boxes and pallets with fumigation marks for packaging. We can also accommodate additional packaging requirements based on customer preferences..
