To calculate the gsm of your material, simply fill out the fields above and select the correct units. It’s free and easy to use!
This calculation is commonly used for nonwoven materials, paper, plastic and other thin materials. The most common way to measure GSM is using a scale and a ruler, but there are sometimes other methods needed for industrial processes.
This calculation is based on the equation below and adjusted based on the units selected.
Want to measure the basis weight variability of a material on-line or off-line?
SolveTech’s unique technology can help.
SolveTech Gauging specializes in manufacturing a proprietary thickness gauging technology that can measure the basis weight of non-conductive materials. It measures the material using the dielectric response, and it does not have any nuclear or x-ray hazards. Common applications include nonwoven materials and coatings.
Interested in learning how you can scan your material to see its GSM profile? Contact us here. Highly accurate and repeatable measurement results that will allow you to see your material variability like never before.
