RE: diamondplate

Check out the link below. It might direct you to better information to explain your question.

As far as I understand, it is made in a rolling mill operation, in that a slab of steel heated to a red hot working temperature, is run through sets of rollers that squeeze the slab thinner and thinner until it is to the thickness desired. I think that diamond plate would be created by running the steel through sets of rollers with a diamond pattern milled in the upper roller, which would be used when the steel was near the finished thickness.

In a plain strip mill, the same thing occurs with the finished product being a flat sheet of steel, smooth on both sides, and at the end of the line, the strip is coiled and sent for storage, shipment, or further processing such as galvanizing.
