How to Measure a Bag

Thickness or Gauge:

The thickness, or “gauge”, of a plastic bag refers to the thickness of a single wall of the bag, generally measured in mils, or thousands of an inch (1000 mil=  1 inch).  (Note: Bags are sometimes measured in microns (mic). To convert between mils and microns: 25.4 microns= 1 mil.)
