Simply so, which is thicker 6 mil or 4 mil plastic?
The most common size in the thickness rating forplastic sheeting is 6 mil. This is 6-thousandthsof an inch, or 0.006 inch. Generally, the thicker theplastic, the stronger it is. If it has string/scrimreinforcement, then the string within the plastic will giveit added strength.
which is thicker 3 mil or 5 mil? So 3 mil is 0.003″ thick, 5mil is 0.005″ thick, 7 mil is 0.007″thick and 10 mil is 0.01″ thick. A3-mil lamination pouch has two 3-milsides, totaling 6 mils. A 5-mil pouch is actually 10total mils thick, a 7-mil pouch is actually 14 totalmils thick and a 10-mil pouch is actually 20 totalmils thick.
