This was on the web site of a blanking plate I bought for my Focus 1.8TDCI

"LIFE TIME GUARANTEE!

Precision laser cut from 3mm stainless steel to withstand the high temperatures generated in diesel engines, unlike the thinner gauge and aluminium blanking plates available which can burn through sending unwanted shrapnel into the engine."

Good point. So if you want one with a hole in it needs to be steel to resist heat, and stainless steel to avoid flakes of rust being blown into the engine
