basis weight

the weight of paper in grams per square metre

basic weight, the weight of 500 sheets of paper of a standard 25 × 38 inch size, measured in pounds

COMMENT: In the USA basis weight can also be given for 1,000 sheets, in which case it is followed by the letter ‘M’: So 120M is the same as 60 pounds basis weight per 500 sheets.
