Square Inch Yield per Pound for Film

Need to know the square inches per pound of film? Here's a chart of several types of film with several film thicknesses.

This chart is for reference only. Film with a coating or other treatment would have a different density.

To calculate the yield of a square inch of film, multiply the thickness (gauge) by the density, then divide by 27.68.

Please contact Pro Pac or call 888-318-0083 for your shrink, stretch, and laminate films.
