Maybe a difficult question but I need to know how much product per square m2 is being used. (single application)

-Meg's Marine RV One Step Cleaner Wax (liquid)
-Meg's Marine Colo Restorer
-Meg's Marine High Gloss Polish
-Meg's Marine Pure Wax
It's just an indication, no precise calculation just an indication.

Thanks!

As Meguiars Says; They do not Like to put a time on how long a product lasts.
It really depends on the conditions.

That's not what I meant ;)

I need to figure out how much product is being used per m2.
For example 250ml/m2...

Not how long it will last.

I don't know how far these products will go as in there is no type of chart for this, one reason is the worse condition the surface the heavier you usually use the product thus the worse condition the surface is the more product you're going to use to effectively restore the appearance.

Conversely, the better condition the surface, the less product you'll tend to use so a bottle of product will go further.


What are you working on a boat or a gel-coat motorhome?

It's for someone else, I really have no idea but I thought if somewhere someone knows it it's on MOL :bounce
Let's say for one single application, 50ml/m2?(around 3sqft?)
Is that something?

Well, assuming by machine, in theory, a bead of cleaner around the outside of a foam pad on a buffer is what you would use for a 2x2 foot square that was reasonably maintained. That maybe would do 3x3 for polish a polish or wax.

Now if we can just find the volume of a bead around the pad.....

Would that be around 20ml? (2/3 of a oz)

Hmm.. not sure... maybe an ounce at most? Though an ounce seems like a lot....

It's really hard to tell you how much product you're going to need without seeing what it is you're going to work on, what the condition of the surface is and all the other factors involved.

The best thing to do would be to take what you need and maybe some extra when you go do do the job.

If you don't use all the product up you'll have some leftover for the next job.
