    Question Omission of relative pronouns?

    Hello,

    I'm an international graduate student studying in US.
    I was reading a weekly research report of one of my friends and got a question.

    My friend wrote that

    "Double side polished glass wafers substrates 3 inches in diameter and 550 microns in thickness were purchased from company ABC."

    I would correct the sentence above like "Double-side-polished glass wafer substrates, 3 inches in diameter and 550 microns in thickness, were purchased from company ABC."

    Is my correction right?
    Please advise! Thanks!

    You did a good job; I just have a few suggestions:
    "Double-sided polished glass wafer substrates, 3 inches in diameter and 550 microns thick, were purchased from Company ABC."

    I have another question. I think I can put "which are" as written below.
    So, the relative pronoun "which' can be omitted.

    Double-sided polished glass wafer substrates, (which are) 3 inches in diameter and 550 microns thick, were purchased from Company ABC.

    Now I'm wondering if I can write:

    Double-sided polished glass wafer substrates 3 inches in diameter and 550 microns thick were purchased from Company ABC.

    Could you please tell me if it is okay or why it is not fine.

    Thanks!
