Rubber Band Basics

How To Measure A Rubber Band

Rubber bands are measured via three dimensions - Length (lay flat length), Width (cut width), and Thickness.

  • 1. Pinch a rubber bands at each end as if to lay the band flat. The distance from end to end is the band length.

  • 2. The width of the band measures how wide the band is, perpendicular to the length.

  • 3. The thickness measures the wall of the band. Thickness generally ranges from 1.1 mm - 2.5 mm.
