Paint calcualation to for Purchase


after we checking the DFT ,solid rate,spreading rate , we concluded that we need 100 litr net paint on material , and if we spray to the particual material arround 60 % wastage will come beacuse the surface area is comming 32 sqr mtr/ton . if I want to get 100 liter net paint on the material with 60% wastage factor , how much paint I have to order , can somebody help me

RE: Paint calcualation to for Purchase

Your phrasing is difficult for me to follow.

If I am reading it correctly, you calculate that the actual, applied wet paint will need to be 100 liters.

If you have 60% wastage*, that means the 100 liters is 40% of the paint you need to purchase. Divide 100 by 0.40 and you get 250 liters you will need to purchase. 150 will be wasted, 100 will end up on your surface.

*Wastage from all sources: On the mixer blade, left in the bucket, sprayed all over the jobsite, left inside the paint hoses & gun, et cetera.
