One microinch = one millionth of an inch = .000001 in.
     The term "microinch" is simply a more convenient way of saying "one millionth of an inch." Although popularly introduced in connection with surface finish measurement, the word is not restricted to that field. In surface finish specifications, however, it usually is an average value. (So-called root-mean-square average.) In this section, microinch and millionth of an inch are used interchangeably.
     For many purposes, it is sufficient to take 1 band -10 microinches or 0.0003mm. To make a true test, both parts being tested the work and optical flat must be allowed to acclimate the surrounding temperatures at the time of the test. Testing two flats, one at a different temperature will result in an untrue reading.
