Stainless Steel Gauge Conversion Chart to mm

Standard Standard to metric conversion tables used in the Stainless Steel industry.  

The Standard Gage provides the thicknesses for standard steel, galvanized steel, and stainless steel. 

Gauge sizes are numbers that indicate the thickness of a piece of metal, with a higher number referring to a thinner sheet. The equivalent thicknesses differ for each gauge size standard, which were developed based on the weight of the sheet for a given material. 

The charts below can be used to determine the equivalent thickness, in inches or millimeters, for a gauge number from the selected gauge size standard. 

The weight per unit area of the sheet can also be seen in pounds per square foot and kilograms per square meter.

The strength per square inch or Tensile Strength is shown in KSI, PSI and Megapascal.
