It is produced by a proprietary cold-rolled, roll-grinding technology with a roughness average of 125, which is almost twice as smooth as typical stainless products. Cold-reduced and temper-passed also makes it flatter than other millplate products. Smooth and flat-surface finishes let fabricators skip typical preparation steps. The 3/16 to 1/2-in.-thick plates are up to 72-in. wide and 600-in. long.
