Total amount of garage floor flake needed for a floor will be determined by a number of factors. For example, a full broadcast floor will require the most chips as it covers the entire floor in flakes.
Additionally, the floor coating you broadcast into may affect the amount of chips needed and that get drawn into the floor coating. As well has how you throw your flakes and the experience that you have in throwing the flake. Size also matters; smaller chips require more pounds to cover the same area. Since 1/4-inch flakes are by far the most popular we will provide a formula for 1/4” flake application. Per manufacturer recommendations you should order 1 pound of flake for every 7 square feet you desire to cover for 1/4” flake. For smaller chips like 1/16” you should 1 pound of flakes for every 4 feet you want to cover with a full flake broadcast.
