Hi all. So I need to calculate the approximate liters of paint needed to paint 500 pieces about 0.85m2 (580mm by 730mm rectangular pieces, 2 sided) each. The specifications allow thickness of 50 microns. Also I'd like to add 30% overspray just in case. How do I calculate the amount of paint needed?

500 * 1.3 * 2 * 0.58 * 0.73 * 0.05 l = 27.521 l
