Enter the total number of quarts of gel and the thickness of coat (mils) into the Gel Coat Coverage Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Gel Coat Coverage. 

Gel Coat Coverage Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Gel Coat Coverage.

GCC = Q * 25 * 15/T

Variables:

  • GCC is the Gel Coat Coverage (square feet of coverage)
  • Q is the total number of quarts of gel 
  • T is the thickness of coat (mils) 

How to Calculate Gel Coat Coverage?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Gel Coat Coverage.


  1. First, determine the total number of quarts of gel. 
  2. Next, determine the thickness of coat (mils). 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = GCC = Q * 25 * 15/T.
  4. Finally, calculate the Gel Coat Coverage.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

total number of quarts of gel = 5

thickness of coat (mils) = 15

GCC = Q * 25 * 15/T = ?
