"Mils to Microns"
Can someone please give me the conversion formula for mils to microns
Emirates Motor Company - UAE
A mil is a thousandth of an inch; a micron (or micrometer) is a millionth of a meter. There are about 39.4 inches in a meter, so 39.4 millionths of an inch in a micron, or .0394 mils. Inversely expressed, a mil is about 25 microns.
