Grammage of material is an important entity that depicts many different properties of that material. The manufacturers in different industries need to evaluate the GSM of the materials to determine various traits such as quality, strength and so forth. In addition to that, the determination of GSM also helps in determining the best way to process the material during the manufacturing process. The most prominent use of GSM is in the paper and packaging industries and Textile industries, where the GSM of the material helps the manufacturers in ensuring that they are providing the best quality materials and products to the clients. The Grammage checking kit is used for calculation of the GSM of different products and materials.

The GSM checking kit contains a GSM round cutter and a GSM digital balance. With the help of the GSM round cutter, a specimen is cut from the sample. This specimen has an accurate area of 100 cm2. This specimen is then taken and weighed on the Digital GSM Balance. The weight of the specimen is then multiplied by 100. This gives the actual; GSM of the sample that is being tested. The manufacturers can easily test the GSM of any materials they want such as fabrics, papers, cardboards, fiber boards, corrugated sheets, etc.
