How much will a gallon of floor coating cover?

Based on a perfectly flat surface, 1 gallon of 100% solids epoxy floor coating will cover 1600 sq. ft. at 1 mil thick. Any derivative of 1600 based on the thickness of the coating will tell you how many square feet the product yields:

  • 1 gallon at 1 mil thick will cover 1600 sq. ft.
  • 1 gallon at 5 mils thick will cover 320 sq. ft.
  • 1 gallon at 10 mils thick will cover 160 sq. ft.
  • 1 gallon at 20 mils thick will cover 80 sq. ft.

It is important to remember these numbers are based on a perfectly flat surface. Floor coating coverage varies depending on the condition of the substrate, and the substrate itself.
