Given a density of 1,6 kg/L (1.6 lbs/lb wt.) for cold paint material, one ton of cold paint corresponds to approximately 625 L (165 gal./1375 lb wt.).
Given a density of 2 kg/L (2 lbs/lb wt.) for thermoplastic material, one ton of this corresponds to approximately 500 L (132 gal./1100 lb wt.)
Calculating the material consumption for your road marking projects can be a difficult process due to the various factors that need to be taken into consideration. From line width and thickness to material density, volume and melting capacity, you need to have a correct overview of what aspects affect your calculations.
Therefore, we have developed an easy tool to calculate material consumption that can be used for cold paint, 2-component cold plastic or thermoplastic.
