Diamond Plate Weight

This is a bit of a random question but I thought some of the pros here might know... http://www.turnersteelcoinc.com/html/plates.html ... what makes diamond plate heavier than smooth steel plate? Is it really just the weight of the diamond pattern on top of the same thickness plate or is it something about the materials typically used? Just bought a chunk of 1/2 in diamond plate scrap for the top of my welding table and it came in about 20 lbs heavier than I was expecting for the size (3'x4').

It's the additional weight of the tread pattern.

Thanks BESRK! BTW, also thank you for your bumper build thread and many contributions to this forum...that thread single-handedly inspired me to go buy a welder and attempt to learn. I am still horrible, but learning everyday and having a blast doing it.

Only thing that caught me off-guard was the price of steel...wow is it expensive for fresh stock. My 3'x4' .half inch was going to cost me $250! Lucky I found a scrap yard around here that sells stuff by the pound for a bit cheaper.

You are quite welcome!! Thanks for the kind words!

Yeah.. steel is kind of pricey. I pay about $350 for a full 4'x8' sheet of 1/2" at the moment..
