What is GSM and OZ? How to conver the OZ to GSM?
GSM (also known as gm/2) = grams per square meter and is the metric measurement of the weight of a fabric. Metric measurements are generally the most common place but some clothing items are still marked in Imperial weights (OZ or oz/yd2 = ounces per yard squared)
what is gsm and oz
How to convert the OZ to GSM
· OZ below refer to Ounces/Square Yard (Should technically be wrote OZ/SQ YD). Just using OZ is technically incorrect, but it is very common.
· G below refers to Grams/Square Meter (Should technically be wrote GSM or gsm). Just using G is technically incorrect, but it is very common.
· GSM or gsm is Grams/Square Meter

All are measures of DENSITY

OZ (Ounces per Square Yard) to GSM (Grams per Square Meter)

Often mistakenly referred to as OZ to G   Or ~ x34


1 Oz/Sq Yd = 33.9057475 GSM

1 GSM = 0.0294935247 Oz/Sq Yd

1 Oz/Sq Yd ~ 34 GSM

There is NO conversion from GSM to MIL or from MIL to GSM (One is a density and one is a thickness). I can't tell you how much someone weighs if you only tell me how tall they are. However, I can make a generalized guess.
Conversion Formulas
There is an easy way to convert gsm to oz/yd².
Divide the gsm by 33.906 - really that is all.
To determine gsm from oz/yd2 you do the reverse - multiple by 33.906.
