Re: What is thicker 80 Gauge or 60 Gauge

For most things measured in gauge, larger numbers mean thinner.

But for plastic film, 1 gauge = 0.01 mil, so larger numbers mean thicker.
80 gauge * 0.01 = 0.8 mil thick
60 gauge * 0.01 = 0.6 mil thick

As mentioned above, 80 gauge is 0.8 mil or 0.0008 in,
therefore 0.0203 mm or 20.3 µm.
