Copper thickness question(s)

Pertti | Jul 28, 202109:29 AM     38

I know this of new production Mazzeti "high thickness, 3 mm" copper pans:

"Please notice that saucepan is made FROM a 3 mm thick copper foil. Due
to the hand hammering over all the surface final thickness may vary from
1.85 upto 2.4 mm also depending by the point of measure. This is the
thickest copper foil we use. "

Is a pan like that considered a true 3mm copper pan?

What about the 2.5 (2.3) mm bimetal pans. Are they too made from a thicker than that sheet/foil and then (com)pressed thinner?
