Commonly Asked Questions


Plastic Film Thickness GaugeNot sure how to approach measuring plastic film and why?  See our article here “How To Measure Plastic Film”.

First, the thickness of the film is often called the film’s “gauge.” Second, you’ll often see gauge, mils, and microns mentioned as measurements. Mils stand for thousandths of an inch. To understand how thin just 1 mil is, think about the thickness of a piece of printer paper. That is about 4 mils thick. 1 mil is equal to 25.4 microns which is equal to .0254 millimeters.  Because films can be less than 0.5 mils thick, it is essential to have a measurement instrument that is highly precise.  SolveTech’s proprietary gauging technology can have a repeatable precision of  +/-0.001 mils.
