What is Mil Thickness?
Mil thickness is a common measurement in manufacturing. A "mil" is a unit of thickness equal to one thousandth of an inch (.001 inch).
To convert mil to inches, divide mil by 1000.
- Example: 2 mil / 1000 = .002 inches
To convert mil to gauge, multiply mil by 100.
- Example: 2 mil x 100 = 200 gauge
How do you measure mil thickness? Measure mil thickness during production or inspection by using a micrometer or thickness gauge.
