The higher the number in tex, the coarser (stronger) the thread. The lower the number in tex, the finer (thinner) the thread.

For the tex numbering, the multiplication sign x can be used instead of the slash at Nm: Nm 80/2 = 12.5 tex x 2

Rule for the conversion of multiple twists:

Twist twist: 2,000: Nm = tex

Triple twist: 3,000: Nm = tex

Quadruple twist: 4,000: Nm = tex
