Calculation tool

When you need larger or thicker plate sizes, Outokumpu hot rolled plates, also known as quarto plates, are the answer. You can specify the size of your hot rolled plates so that they exactly meet your requirements.

The bigger the plates, the fewer you need, so when it comes to welding you benefit from cheaper and faster assembly. By choosing a duplex grade, which enables the same properties as standard grades but with a lower thickness, the reduced weight magnifies these benefits and also reduces transport costs.

For many customers our hot rolled quarto plate is delivered in prefabricated condition, including prepolishing, edge preparation and corrugation.   


Typical applications of hot rolled quarto plate

  • Large storage tanks​
  • Pulp towers
  • Pipe processing
  • Bulk cargo tanks in chemical tankers
  • Oil and gas pipes
