Liner Selection Guide

Helpful Formulas:

  • Mils vs. Microns
    • Mil – A unit of measurement in thousandths of an inch. (i.e., .001 = one thousandth of an inch or 1.0 mil). Generally used to designate the thickness of LLDPE, or "Low Density" products.
    • Mic – Short for micron, one thousandth of a millimeter. Generally used to designate the thickness of HDPE, or "High Density" products.
  • For the EXACT conversion:
    • Mils to Microns: (Number of Mils) x 25.4 (i.e., .75 mil = 19 microns).
    • Microns to Mils: (Number of Microns) / 25.4 (i.e., 14 microns = .55 mil).
  • For the approximate strength equivalents:
    • LL to HD
      Mil. - Low Density
      Mic. - High Density
