TAPPI T410 Grammage of Paper

Testing Standard:

TAPPI T410 Grammage of Paper and Paperboard (Weight Per Unit Area)

Standard Number
TAPPI T410

Standard Title
Grammage of Paper and Paperboard (Weight Per Unit Area), Test Method

Overview for TAPPI T410 Grammage of Paper:

TAPPI T410 Test Method is the measurement of mass per unit area of the material derived from a linear measurement and weight. Paper is generally sold by its grammage throughout the world and is necessary data when referring to many other physical properties such as bursting strength, thickness, and bulk. Purple Diamond Testing offers TAPPI T410 Grammage of Paper and Paperboard as part of our packaging compliance and validation services.

The test method involves cutting a sample of the paper or paperboard into a specific size and weighing it on an electronic balance. The area of the sample is then calculated and the Grammage is determined by dividing the weight of the sample by the area it represents. 

This test method is used to ensure consistency in paper and paperboard manufacturing and to control the amount of raw materials used in the production process. It is also used in quality control to ensure that the final product meets the required specifications. 

TAPPI T410 is commonly used in the pulp and paper industry as well as in research and development laboratories.

Rationale for TAPPI T410 Grammage of Paper:

TAPPI T410 – Grammage of Paper and Paperboard. Grammage data is essential when designing packaging such as corrugated boxes. The grammage of paper correlates to the bursting strength resistance. The grammage is a ratio of mass and unit area which is obtained through linear measurements and weighing. Typically, grammage of paper is recorded as pounds per ream (500 sheets), pounds per 1000 square feet, or grams per square meter.
