Hello, I am new to the forum.I notice that some companies products using "ml" and some companies using "#"(micro) to measure the paper weight. It's makes so confused.
Example, "2.0 ml polyester base", how to transfer to "micro"?
Thanks all.

It means one thousandths of an inch. So 2mil is .020 inches.

Point like point board also is a reference to inches. So a 12pt is .012", 20pt is .020".

This might help: http://www.paper-paper.com/weight.html

You missed a decimal point . . . 2 mil = 0.002 = two thousands of an inch

or it could mean mili liter = 1/1000 of a liter . . . wine bottles frequently come in a750 ml size and also 1.5 L

Thank you for your answer. Do you know about "micro", some label products using "#"(micro) to measure the weight (or thickness )? Can "micro" transfer to "ml"?

Do you mean micron? It is one thousandth of milimeter, or a millionth of metre. It usually is a measure of thickness. For example, film. Whereas, micro means very small.
