Enter the roll length (ft), the roll width (in), and the film gauge into the Stretch Film Weight Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Stretch Film Weight.

## Stretch Film Weight Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Stretch Film Weight.

**SFW = L * W * (G/250,000)**

Variables:

- SFW is the Stretch Film Weight (lbs)
- L is the roll length (ft)
- W is the roll width (in)
- G is the film gauge

## How to Calculate Stretch Film Weight?

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Stretch Film Weight.

**Example Problem #1**

- First, determine the roll length (ft).
- The roll length (ft) is calculated to be : 120.

- Next, determine the roll width (in).
- The roll width (in) is measured to be: 30.

- Next, determine the film gauge.
- The film gauge is found to be: 150.

- Finally, calculate the Stretch Film Weight using the formula above:

SFW = L * W * (G/250,000)

The values provided above are inserted into the equation below and computed.

SFW = 120 * 30 * (150/250,000) = 2.16 (lbs)

**Example Problem #2**

The variables required for this problem are provided below:

roll length (ft) = 60

roll width (in) = 30

film gauge = 1000

Test your knowledge and check your answer with the calculator.

SFW = L * W * (G/250,000) =** **(lbs)
