    Somebody help me here. I have heard of quarter mil, third mil, and half mil mylar. In another thread (Quark Power) there is reference to 1.3 mil. 😕

    What is the thiness (something that thin can’t ever be referred to by thickness) of each of these? 😕

    I need dimensions in thousandths of an inch.

    Thanks in advance.

    I always thought a mil was .001

    A good question. Thank-you for the answer.
    And to all my fellow veterans out there, have a good one.

    “I always thought a mil was .001”

    So quarter mil should be .00025, and 1.3 mil is relatively speaking boiler plate? 😕 😕

    Technically, quarter-mil is PIA.

    What brought this on, I bought some mylar some time ago, don’t remember where. It was marked “quarter mil”. Ten pieces of them stacked miked to .005. I figured that is really half-mil stuff. Right?

    It is a nice foundation to lay tissue on. The combination is nearly impossible to tear, and punctures don’t run. I am still looking for quarter mil for P30 stabs.

    I think Lee Campbell carries 1/4 mil in clear and chromed.
