Shrink Film FAQs
Shrink film is measured by gauge. One mil is one thousandth of an inch. This is numerically written .001. A gauge is is a unit of measurement used for everything from plastic to wire and sheet metal. One gauge is one hundredth of a mil or one hundred thousandth of an inch. Plastic is also measured by microns. A micron, short for micrometer is one millionth of a meter. See the conversion chart and examples below.
The thicker the film the more time it will take to shrink the film down to the size of your product.
