What is Chipboard, Part 2....How is chipboard measured?
Chipboard is measured is inches. Just in deciamls rather then fractions for accuracy. I've listed a few common fractions so you can get the idea.
So the higher the number the thicker the chipboard. You may have also heard chipboard refered to as guages, calibers or points. They are all the same. If it says 22 point, that is .022 .22 is usually .022 as well Unless its close to 1/4th of an inch thick otherwise they mean .022 .022 is the most commonly used thickness of chipboard as it is the standard for most of todays food packaging. You'll Find .022 as cereal boxes, tissue boxes, and most snack boxes.
I do have samples available for comparison.
In an attempt to find general items around the house that everyone uses to compare thickness too. We have found that the standard credit card thickness is between .028 and .030.
