epoxy grout is an amazing product that adds a lot of strength and durability to your countertops and floors.
You can use it to tile your bathroom, kitchen, or even entire house! It’s perfect for projects like these because it’s so easy to work with.
You just mix it up and pour it into the gaps between tiles or planks of wood—no messy sanding required.
But how much epoxy grout should you buy? That depends on how big your project is and what kind of coverage you want.
If you’re tiling only one wall, for example, then you’ll only need enough for one small bucket (about 3 gallons).
However, if you’re tiling an entire room like a bathroom or kitchen then you’ll need about 4-5 gallons per 10 square feet (or more).
That might sound like a lot but once mixed with water epoxy grout turns into a nice smooth paste that spreads easily over surfaces without any drips or spills!

How do you calculate epoxy grout?
To find the amount of grout you need, you will need to know a couple of things:
- The area of the floor
- The thickness of the grout you are using (usually 1/8″ or more)
- The density of your epoxy grout (you’ll see this in our product information)
How much does a 5kg bag of grout cover?
A 5kg bag of grout will cover approximately 15 square metres, but this is only a rough estimate. The coverage varies depending on how thick or thin you apply the grout and how porous your surface is.
For example, if you’re working with an absorbent substrate like concrete or plasterboard then it will take more material to achieve full coverage than if you were applying it to tile or stone (which are less absorbent).
How much does a 10lb bag of grout cover?
A 10lb bag of grout will cover about 40-50 square feet or roughly 10-14 square meters. If your project is smaller, you’ll want to buy a smaller pack, and for larger projects, you’ll need more than one bag.
How much grout do I need for 40 square feet?
To calculate the amount of grout you need for a specific project, use a simple formula:
- The area of your project (in square feet) x 2.5 = the total amount in cubic feet
For example, if you have a 40 square foot area to cover with epoxy grout, multiply 40 x 2.5 and get 120 cubic feet.
Divide this figure by 100 to find out how many bags of epoxy grout are needed: 120 divided by 100 = 1.2 bags of epoxy grout per 40 square foot area (or one bag every 12 square feet).
How much epoxy Do I need a calculator?
The answer to this question depends on how much space you are covering and the type of flooring you are working with.
For example, if you want to cover an area of 50 square feet, then you will need approximately 3 gallons of epoxy grout for that job.
How many sq ft Does a 25 lb bag of grout cover?
A 25-pound bag of grout covers approximately 30 square feet.
That’s about 10 square meters or 1.25 square yards.
For reference, a standard 8x4ft tiled shower would use about 6-7 bags of 25lb grout (assuming you’re going for a medium or thick setting).
How much will 2.5 kg of grout cover?
If you have a look at the Grout Calculator, you can see that one kilogram of grout will cover about 14 square metres.
Remember, this is for normal strength grout. If you are using a higher strength epoxy then it’s going to be even more coverage per kilogram as there is more solids in it. For example, if we worked out how much of our high strength 20kg kit would be needed for 2.5 square meters: 20 kg x 1 m2/14 sq m = 1.4 m2 per baggie!
So if your area was less than 4 square meters (for example) then you could get away with only needing 2 bags of the highest quality resin-filled resin modified glass fibre-based system on the market today!
You could also mix them together and use them side by side; this way they blend together better and give better overall results (we recommend doing this).
How many Metres does 5kg grout cover?
We have a handy guide to help you figure out how much epoxy grout you will need for your project:
- 5kg covers approximately 15 square meters. This is the amount of space that is 1m x 1m x 0.5m (1 meter high).
- 5kg covers approximately 20 square feet, which is the area covered by an American football field end zone to end zone without including any seating areas or sidelines on either side of the field but at its widest point where they would be if they were included.
- 5kg covers approximately 1.5 square yards, which equates more accurately to covering an area of roughly 30cm x 30cm x 30cm (approximately 1 foot x 1 foot x 1 foot).
