Calculation of GSM of Packaging Fabrics for Best Strength and Quality of Packaging

The fabric is a major material that is used in the packaging industry for preparing packaging bags that are used for packaging of different products in the packages. The manufacturers of different products need to ensure that the products are packaged efficiently for safe transportation and storage and hence they must ensure that when the fabric is chosen for manufacturing of the packaging bag, all of its features and qualities are analyzed.

The GSM of fabric is grams per cmand one of the most basic indicators of the fabric strength and hence it is essential for the manufacturers of packaging bags to choose the fabric with an optimum value of GSM that ensures the best strength of the packaging.

The strength of the fabric is directly proportional to the GSM of the fabric hence as higher the GSM, higher will be the value of the strength of the fabric. For best evaluation, it is essential to calculate the GSM of the fabric with great accuracy. Here is the best method to find the GSM of a given fabric sample.

Instrument required:

  1. GSM round cutter
  2. Digital GSM weight Balance


The user needs to cut five swatches from the sample of the given fabric. The area of these swatches will be 100 cm2. The users need to weigh these swatches on the digital GSM balance and find out their weight. Now take the average weight of the swatches and then calculate the GSM of the fabric with the given formula.

This will give an accurate analysis of the GSM of the given sample ad with the help of which, the users can easily estimate the strength and other attributes of the given fabric.

Presto offers a highly accurate GSM calculating kit which includes a GSM round cutter and a digital GSM weighing balance which are used in different industries for the purpose of finding accurate GSM of different samples.
