The calculator below calculates the theoretical thickness of plastic film using the equation (volume) x (density) = (weight). This calculator can be used to calculate the average thickness of plastic film or the thickness of other materials NIST traceably. Learn more in our article “How to Measure Plastic Film”.
SolveTech, Inc. manufactures high precision gauging systems using a proprietary capacitance technology. If you are interested in measuring thickness in the lab, check out our PR2000 Precision Profiler.(Complies with new ASTM Standard D8136) For on-line applications, see our product page here.
