Formulas

  • Length x Width x Basis Wt. ÷ 950 (round up or down) x 2 = MWT
  • Lnft x Width x GSM ÷ 58589 = Lbs of a roll
  • Lbs ÷ 2.2046 = KG
  • GSM ÷ 1.48 = Basis Wt.
  • MWT x Price per lb = Price per 1000 sheets
  • Price per 1000 sheets ÷ MWT = CWT price
  • Lnft x 12 x Width of roll ÷ 1000 = MSI
  • MWT x # of sheets = Lbs
