Cut pieces and other sheet sizes


Calculate weight in kg.

L = length in mm

W = width in mm

T = thickness in mm

G = specific gravity for grade (see above)


Weight in kg = (L x W x T x G) /1,000,000



Calculate weight in pounds

L = length in inches

W = width in inches

T = thickness in inches

G = specific gravity for grade (see above)


Weight in pounds = 0.0361 x L x W x T x G
