What is a gauge size?
Gauge (or gage) sizes are numbers that indicate the thickness of a piece of sheet 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.
Where can I find the wire gauge chart?
To see the latest wire gauge chart, you can see ASTM B258-18. You can also use AWG gauges to describe stranded wire. For a stranded wire, the AWG gauge is the sum of the cross-sectional areas of each strand.
What is the equivalent thickness of a standard gauge?
The equivalent thicknesses differ for each gauge size standard, which were developed based on the weight of the sheet for a given material. The Manufacturers’ Standard Gage provides the thicknesses for standard steel, galvanized steel, and stainless steel.
What does a higher gauge number mean?
Lastly, a standard exists for Zinc in which a higher gauge number indicates a thicker sheet. The chart below can be used to determine the equivalent sheet thickness, in inches or millimeters, for a gauge number from the selected gauge size standard.
