Powder Coating Coverage Calculator

Use the form below to determine values in either ft2/lb or m2/kg using either mils or µm as DFT measurements.

Below some of the variables that may account for a difference between theoretical and actual coverage:

  • Powder coating loss during the process of cleaning the booth, hoses, application equipment and hopper.
  • Powder coating loss through recycling in cyclone equipment.
  • Unrecycled overspray.
  • Variation in film thickness on the coated parts.
  • Variable surface roughness (e.g. sandblasted parts).
