    Assuming 500 and 700 gauge mean 5 and 7 mils, respectively, then 127 and 178 m (divide by 1000 for mm)

      Re: plastic thickness - mil/ mm/ gauge

      I am looking to buy some plastic bags to uses as Ice bag. You put ice in them when you hurt yourself. The Company in US tells me they are extra thick at 0.6 microns? Is this thick?
      Please help.

        No, that is extra thin. 0.001 uinches is 25.4 m.

        I would say aroun 50 m is the beginning of "thick" and perhaps 100 m for "extra thick."

            Hi, I'm quite new to this and ran across it while trying to figure out how to get the mil of a bag if all I have is the length, width and weight in grams. Can anyone help me?

            I have a bag that is 48" x 14" and weighs 7.9 grams

                40/0.254
                = 157.48 gauge.

                I am dealing with european market for plastic stretch film which use metrical measure. Now I am entering American market for the same product a bit head ache in the first time however I found a way and make my self a table when it comes to converting american standard specification for Stretch film into European.

                American standard is Width (inch) Length (Feet) Thickness (Gauge)
                European standard is Width (Mili meter) Length (Meter) Thickness (Micron)

                xInch*254=MM Xfeet*0.3048=M Xgauge*0.254=Micron.

                I find it helpful when I am offering a stretch film to American Company.
                I hope yo'll find this info usefull....If you have more info and want to share please email me

                  Agree with the last two conversions. Note that 1 inch = 25.4 mm, exactly. You are missing the decimal

                    Re: plastic thickness - mil/ mm/ gauge

                    Simply, is the higher the number mean the thicker the plastic? 1 being thinner than 6?

                      Yes, which is the reverse of most wire and sheet metal gauge systems.

                        ANSWER: you also need density of the polybag to get the 'mil' which is the thickness (G) measurement of it.

                        calculation: density(D)= D gm/cm3

                        D = 7.9/48*2.54*14*2.54*G

                        T = 7.9/48*2.54*14*2.54*D cm = x cm (say the value as 'x')

                        x cm = 100x mm = 100x/.0254 mil


                        I hope you will calculate it now...

                          guage * 0.01 = mil
                          mil / 0.01 = guage

                          mil * 0.0254 = millimeter
                          millimeter / 0.0254 = mil

                          This was really helpful! Thank you!
                          For those who are confused, 1 mil is an english (imperial) measurement = .001 inch
                          mil is Latin for thousand (or derived from) and not to be confused with a metric term.

                            Your bag would be 10 micron thick
                            or 0.254 mil
                            or 39.4 gauge

                              Re: calculate gross weigth on straight gauge and thick thin gauge

                              Hi community,

                              How do you calculate plastic bag straight gauge and thick-thin gauge in low and high density polyethylene and polypropolene.

                              Thank you in advance for your assistance.
