Rubber bands are measured via three dimensions
– Length (lay flat length), Width (cut width), and Thickness.
To measure a rubber band:
- Pinch a rubber band at each end to lay the band flat. The distance from end to end is the band length.
- The width of the band measures how wide the band is, perpendicular to the length.
- The thickness measures the wall of the band. Thickness generally ranges from 1.1 mm – 2.5 mm.
