Coating amount calculator


Use our coating amount calculator to calculate the required coating quantity for your print job.

Please note that these are only approximate values based on standard anilox rollers and the results of the calculation may differ from the actual coating quantities required. You should also remember that the result does not take into account the quantities of coating required for circulation and that the calculation is only suitable for unpigmented coatings.

Additional coating quantities required for filling and circulation of the coating unit coatings:
Sheet sizes up to 500 x 700 mm = approx. 5 kg
Sheet sizes up to 700 x 1,000 mm = approx. 10 kg
Sheet formats up to 1,000 x 1,400 mm = approx. 15 kg
(Values vary depending on coating unit design and peripherals used, e.g. coating unit temperature control)
