The coverage, or yield, of TotalBoat Penetrating Epoxy will vary greatly based upon the porosity of the substrate it is being applied to, and the desired application thickness. Both regular and cold weather penetrating epoxy products share the same coverage rates, as they are both 100% epoxy.
The chart below gives rough guidelines as to what the minimum and maximum reasonable coverage rates are for each unit of measure (when both components are mixed together). Actual results may yield lower or higher values than are posted below. The addition of solvent to thin Penetrating Epoxy will not extend the coverage or change the values posted below.
|UNIT OF MEASURE||MINIMUM REASONABLE COVERAGE RATE*||MAXIMUM REASONABLE COVERAGE RATE*|
|Pint Kit (pint resin, 1/2 pt. hardener)||20 square feet||40 square feet|
|Quart Kit (quart resin, pint hardener)||40 square feet||80 square feet|
|Half-Gallon Kit (half-gallon resin, quart hardener)||80 square feet||160 square feet|
|Gallon Kit (gallon resin, half-gallon hardener)||160 square feet||320 square feet|
*Does not account for any wasted material. Commonly, 10-20% of the material can be considered lost material due to being trapped in paint brushes or rollers, accidental drips, or unrecoverable material left in the bottles and mixing cups. The percentage of waste will vary for each application.
