Measuring paper could be a very tedious task, especially for those that do not have the technical knowledge of its weighing scales and measurement nitty-gritty. There are two essential scales of measurement for paper, and they are the pound measurement scales as well as the point weight scales of measurement. The point measurement scale describes the weight of a single sheet of paper while the pound measurement scale describes the weight measurement of paper in a ream.
It is expedient to determine the meaning of the pound rating for paper because of its applications in the heavy duty stapler and other paper application industries. Rayson is a leading manufacturer of some of the home and office equipment that uses and makes paper usable such as the wire binding machine, the comb binding machine, the heavy duty stapler, et cetera.
The meanings of the pound rating for paper are translated into the following terms:
• The weight of a single ream of paper
A ream of paper is a pack of five hundred (500) sheets of paper. And the pound rating of paper is the weight of this pack of five hundred (500) sheets. Therefore, the pound rating of paper refers to the weight of this pack of paper.
• The weight of paper measures in pounds
Perhaps this is where the name the pound rating of paper comes from. The pound rating of paper refers to the weight of the paper ream as measured in pounds. Therefore the pound rating of paper is represented by the weighing unit “lbs,” which refers to pounds.
• The pound rate of paper is summarily a description of the weight of a pack (or a ream) of five hundred sheets of paper.
