While a Mil is one-thousandth of an inch, a Micron is one-millionth of a meter. So how do you handle a Micron to Mil conversion?

Technically, the standard term for microns is “micrometre.” However, in English-speaking countries the term micron is more commonly used.

Since nearly all we sell is measured in Mils, it’s good to have a sense of what we’re talking about when packaging measured in Microns comes up: There are 25 microns in a mil. When you get a request for a quote using microns (most likely in the trash liner arena or other types of HDPE packaging), use this chart for a quick and easy way to convert measurements.
