** Bulk is calculated by dividing thickness in microns, by gramme weight e.g. 304microns/250gsm = 1.2


Quality Characteristics:
 

Terminology Description
Thickness (also called 'caliper') Measured in microns, 1000 microns = 1mm
Grammage (also called 'substance') Weight, measured in grammes per square metre (g/m²)
Stiffness The bending resistance of a board - always higher in machine direction than cross direction. Measurement: Taber. Bending a strip of board over a 15º angle. The higher the percentage the glossier the surface.
Gloss Surface reflectance of a coated surface. Measurement: Hunter, expressed as a percentage of reflected to incident light, shone at 75º from the plane of the surface. The higher the percentage the glossier the surface.
Smoothness Surface smoothness of a board. Measurement: PPS or Bendtsen, measures the amount of air leaking out from a flat measuring head under constant pressure. Express in ml/min or microns peak/trough. The higher the value the rougher the board.
Brightness Measures the blue/white resistance. Measurement: ISO and express as percentage of standard value. The higher the percentage, the brighter the surface.
