Thicker only implies better... it isn't necessarily so, though!

You can have a 1 mil (mil = 1000th an inch) film that could be poorly made and last 6 months and you can have a 1 mil window film that can last years. You can have a 2 ply 1 mil or a one ply 1 mil... 2 ply being a laminant of .48 mil = .48 mil...

The majority of available premium auto films (domestically) are 1.5 mil in construction.

Some manufacturer's believe it better to use 1 mil + 1mil to give the film the illusion it is of better quality and they cold be using the cheapest poly substrate available or it could be a non-weatherable poly.

Too many possibilities to come to a single conclusion that thicker is better...
