Default how is insulation measured and what does it mean?

how is insulation measure compared to its warmth? i know its in grams per square inch i believe but how warm is 40g insulation vs 60 or 80. and im guessing the more insulation at least in polyester the poofer the clothing?

also what are the different types of insulation and how do they compare?
