How is epoxy resin applied? It is best to apply the resin on horizontal surfaces or with slight inclinations, spreading it with a trowel or spatula to achieve a uniform result.

The maximum thickness allowed by the resin is also taken into account to maintain the transparency of the product when applying it to surfaces of different sizes. However, in general terms, in epoxy resins with a 100% solid composition, the yield is 1 kg/m². For 1 mm thick layers, this type of resin can reach a maximum of 5 mm while maintaining full transparency. Do you want to correctly calculate the amount of resin you need to use?
