What is GSM?
GSM stands for "grams per square meter" and is a unit of measurement commonly used to indicate the weight or thickness of paper, fabric, or other materials. It represents the mass of a square meter of the material.
So, when you see a measurement expressed as "GSM," it refers to the weight in grams of one square meter of the material in question. For example, if a fabric has a GSM value of 200, it means that one square meter of that fabric weighs 200 grams.
GSM is frequently used in the textile and paper industries to specify the thickness or density of materials, such as paper, cardboard, fabric, or non-woven materials.
It provides a standardized way to compare the weight or thickness of different materials and is particularly relevant in determining the quality and suitability of various products for specific applications.
