- In the United States, foils are commonly gauged in thousandths of an inch or mils. Standard household foil is typically 0.016 mm (0.63 mils) thick, and heavy duty household foil is typically 0.024 mm (0.94 mils). The foil is pliable, and can be readily bent or wrapped around objects.
- Galvanization or galvanizing is the process of applying a protective zinc coating to steel or iron, to prevent rusting. The most common method is hot-dip galvanizing, in which the parts are submerged in a bath of molten zinc.

- Showing 1-9 of 9 answers. 40 gauge is usually a reference to the thickness in thousandths of an inch. So, assuming this is the same, .040" thick, divided by .03937 (Metric conversion) gives you 1.016mm thick. James Flinchbaugh answered on October 16, 2013.

Sheet metal is metal formed by an industrial process into thin, flat pieces. In the US, the thickness of sheet metal is commonly specified by a traditional, non-linear measure known as its gauge. The larger the gauge number, the thinner the metal. Commonly used steel sheet metal ranges from 30 gauge to about 7 gauge.
- Shotguns are classified by gauge, which is a measure related to the diameter of the smooth shotgun bore and the size of the shotshell designed for that bore. Gauge is determined by the number of lead balls of size equal to the approximate diameter of the bore that it takes to weigh one pound.
- Syringe Needle Size. Needle size refers to both the length and gauge (thickness) of the needle. Needle Length. BD syringes are available with short needles (6mm or 8mm). BD Pen Needles are available in 1/8" (4mm), 5/16" (8mm) and 3/16" (5mm) lengths.
- It refers to how big of a piercing hole is needed to accommodate the jewelry. Gauge is abbreviated g. Gauge sizes are usually a number followed by g or the word gauge. Gauge sizes work in reverse, meaning that higher numbers (like 16 gauge) are thinner than smaller numbers (like a 6 gauge).
