How to calculate how much epoxy you’ll need for your project
Try our simple epoxy calculator.
Or, refer to the formula below:
Measure the area you will fill with epoxy to determine how much you will need.
AREA: Length x width X depth = Volume needed in cubic inches.
1 quart of mixed epoxy = 57.75 cubic inches
2 quarts of mixed epoxy = 115.5 cubic inches
3 quarts of mixed epoxy = 173.25 cubic inches
1 gallon of mixed epoxy = 231 cubic inches
To convert cubic inches to ounces, divide by 1.805. Remember, there are 128 ounces per gallon.
