E-Coat Fractional Plates — your secret weapon
for hitting new personal bests.

Thought our original Fractional Plates couldn’t get any better? Think again.

Our e-coat fractional plates have the same 1% guaranteed accuracy and 52mm center hole as our original Fractional Weight Plates, but now with a glossy black e-coat.

Benefits of the E-Coat Fractional Plates

  • EXCELLENT RUST RESISTANCE
    If you know that a bare steel powerlifting bar would rust in your humid home gym, then do we have you covered. The thin electro-coating (e-coat) on our e-coat fractional plates gives excellent rust resistance. So you can sweat  — or cry — on them between sets without worry.
  • MORE PERSONAL RECORDS
    Whether you’re a beginner or advanced lifter, your lifts will eventually plateau. If adding 2.5lb plates to each side of the bar causes you to fail the lift, you can load a fraction of that instead and continue getting stronger. Plus, a 1lb PR is easier to hit than a 5lb PR — yes, it still counts!
  • EASY MICRO-LOADING
    Adding just 5lbs to your 50lb EZ bar curl is a whopping 10% weight jump. No wonder smaller muscles lag so far behind! Fractional plates make it easier to load exercises that work smaller muscle groups like your biceps, triceps and shoulders. By micro-loading in 1, 2, 3 or 4lb increments, you get fewer plateaus and more progress.
  • GORGEOUS BLACK COLOR
    So, you’re not a huge fan of the gray hammertone color on our original fractional plates? No biggie. The all-black color on these e-coat fractional plates will upgrade your space by becoming the sleek centerpiece of your home gym.

Features and Benefits

Natural Texture

Originally made for the automotive industry, e-coating has become increasingly popular due to its great durability and excellent rust resistance. Although it’s applied in a thin layer, the smooth texture still allows the natural grit of the iron underneath to be felt.

Easy to Clean

Thought that glossy e-coat was just pretty to look at? Oh, silly you. Since the coating binds directly to the iron in a smooth layer, it has fewer grooves for chalk, sweat and bacteria to hide. One quick wipe and your plates are squeaky clean.

Perfect Fit

In an act of desperation, lifters often resort to using washers or magnets to create makeshift 0.5 lb plates. Sadly, they either don’t fit on the sleeve of your barbell or they fall off mid-set. With these 0.5lb fractional plates, they’ll actually fit on the sleeve of your Olympic barbell and stay on as they should.

40 Years of Experience

Our e-coat fractional plates are cast in a specialty casting factory with over 40 years of experience, for reliable quality and workmanship that you can trust.

Great product, great price, great service

My overall experience was A-One top notch. I had a question before I made my purchase which was quickly answered. When I made my purchase it was easy, delivery communication was good and the produce was exactly as described. I would recommend both Bells of Steel and these fractional plates.
