Whilst there are a range of factors that will determine the amount of S2S product required for any given surface (the most significant being, if already corroded, coverage will be reduced) the following can be used as a guide to calculate the required volumes.
|PLID Thin Film||PLID Industrial||PLID HD||PLID Float Coat|
|Coverage M2 per Litre||6.5||3.5||2||4.6|
|Thickness in Microns||0.025 to 0.05||0.20 to 0.25||0.45 to 0.50||0.025 to 0.05|
|Salt Spray Test Hours/Years lasting||100/1||300/3||1000/10||500/5|
N.B. To convert the coverage of Square Feet per US Gallon to Square Metres per Litre multiply by 0.024 e.g. 200 Square Feet per US Gallon (multiply 0.024) = 4.8 Square Metres per Litre
When deciding on product choice there are a range of factors that will need to be considered but when determining the real costs of protecting a given surface one has to consider the cost for a given period of time and so this requires both material costs and the application costs to be factored in as well as the frequency of repetition of applying the protection.
