Features of typical GSM Cutter:
  • Cutting are 100 Square Centimetres, which is exactly 1 / 100th of a square meter
  • The depth of cutting up to 5mm. 
  • Special finishes for contacting surfaces to avoid of specimen slippage.
The weight of the circular fabric specimen is in grams. The resulted weight (grams) of the specimen is multiplied by 100 to get the weight in grams per square meter (GSM).

The formula for measuring fabric GSM with this GSM cutter:
Grams per square meter (GSM) = (Specimen weight in grams x 100)
