Estimate paint coverage capability
A proper assessment helps choosing the most appropriate paint packaging size. It is also worth to know that paint coverage is affected by various factors.
To improve coverage
Paint coverage depends on several factors. Planning painting work is an important activity. When planning, it is necessary to pay attention to the preparation of the surface to be painted, as well as the chosen paint and application method.
- Pay attention to choosing the right tools for painting and using an appropriate painting technique
- Choose the most suitable paint product for the given surface
- Don’t forget about surface preparation and cleanup
- Apply primers and undercoats
The EU Ecolabel criteria for paints and varnishes
Spreding rate/ coverage
At a 98% hiding power, white paints and light-coloured paints (including finishes and intermediates) shall have a spreading rate of at least 8 m2 per litre of product for indoor paints and 6 m2 for outdoor paints. This criterion only applies to white base tinting systems.
- Outdoor paints
> 6 m2/l
- Indoor paints
> 8 m2/l
