How do I figure the film thickness of a coating?
Film thickness is expressed in mils – one mil is equal to one thousandth of an inch. One gallon of 100% solids material covers 1600 square feet at one mil thickness (about the thickness of a sheet of copy paper). To figure the coverage of Sport Kote (#222) to achieve one mil thickness, you would take 1600 ft2 X 0.29 (29% solids) = 465 square feet. Since Sport Kote is used at 800 to 1000 square feet per gallon, users are typically getting 0.6 mil (465/800) to 0.5 mil (465/1000) coverage per coat.
