Formulas for calculating Weight per 1000 bags:
This formula is used to calculate the minimum number of bags needed for a run.
Material type: LDPE, LLDPE, Polypropylene
L X W / 3 X 2 X Gauge / 10 =
12 X 12 (144) / 3 (48) x 2 (96) X 2 gauge (192) / 10 = 19.2 lbs / 1000
19.2 lbs per 1000 / 500 lbs = 26,000 bags
HDPE L x W x .0686 x gauge = Weight per 1000 bags
12 x 12 (144) x .0686 x 1.5 mil = 14.82 lbs / 1000
