Please use this Epoxy Resin Calculator as a reference guide only for our table top and coating epoxy. We have calculated for loss due to mixing and project overflow. Our general tabletop epoxy coverage rule is 12 square feet per mixed gallon at 1/8 inch. Each project is unique and some surfaces are more porous than others which may require additional epoxy. When in doubt, reach out. Ask Us Questions Here.

How To Calculate Epoxy Resin Coverage
Calculating how much epoxy you'll need for a project is based on volume. We get many questions asking how much epoxy is needed for a specific square foot project, but many neglect to consider the thickness. Additionally, many neglect to consider whether a seal coat is necessary as well as the loss due to epoxy flowing over the sides/edges of the project. The coverage calculator above does our best to account for the loss due to these factors.
Better To Have More Than Not Enough
Underestimating the amount of epoxy needed can end up costing more in the long run. When pouring a project and running out mid-project will often require the entire project to be poured again. Matching up epoxy pours (especially on a surface like a table top or bar top) can be extremely difficult and often will leave behind a visible line where the two pours match up. The proper way to address this is to sand the entire surface (once cured, of course) and pour the entire surface again. If this were to happen, we recommend starting the pour in the low area (where epoxy did not cover during the initial pour). This is the best way to prevent a line from appearing in the final coat. However, each project is unique. Please feel free to contact us with specific project questions.
