How To Calculate Epoxy

The calculation for determining the amount of epoxy you need is a simple volume calculation. You simply multiple the length of the pour by the depth of the pour by the average width of the pour and then convert to litres. When calculating the average width of the pour, we measure the width every 6 inches along the entire work piece and then divide by the total number of width measurements you took to determine our average. 

Formula: Length (L) X Depth (D) by Average Width (AVG W)


Example: 

Length: 48"

Depth: 1.5"

Average Width: 6"

48” x 1.5” x 6” = 432 cubic inches.

You can now convert your cubic inches in to litres. This can be completed 2 ways:

1) Convert using google: Type “432 cubic inches to litres” in to the search bar.    432 cubic inches = 7.08 Litres 

2) you can divide your cubic inch total by 61. 

432/61 = 7.08 Litres.
