The method for determining paint consumption is based on the surface area to be painted and the paint’s coverage rate. The fundamental formula is as follows:
Surface Area (in square metres or square feet) x Paint Consumption (in litres or gallons) = Coverage Rate (in square metres or square feet per litre or gallon)
For example, if the surface area is 100 square metres and the paint coverage rate is 10 square metres per litre, the paint consumption is:
100 square metres divided by 10 square metres per litre equals 10 litres of paint.
