How To Measure Plastic Film

Looking to measure the thickness and variability of plastic film? 
SolveTech’s unique technology can help per ASTM D8136.


You can also learn more about measuring plastic film thickness and variability in our article “How to Measure Plastic Film”.

A “mil” is 1/1000th of an inch.  This can sometimes mean a millimeter to people outside of the United States, so don’t get confused!  Gauge is (100) x (mils), so for example 0.3 mils = 30 gauge.  To go from mils to microns, you multiply mils x 25.4.
