- YieldThe amount of product that can be produced from a given weigtht of material. Most packaging raw materials are sold by weight. However, because of density differences, the same weight of similar materials can produce different amounts of finished product. For example, the yield for a plastic resin used for film manufacture might be expressed as the number of square meters of film that could be make from 1 kilogram of the material. In other instances, the yield might be expressed in terms of volume per unit weight, or the actual number of physical objects per unit weight.
