Re: 6oz. vs. 4oz for deck

From System 3's The Epoxy Book:

6 oz glass + epoxy on a softwood surface = 2.3 oz per square foot.

4 oz glass + epoxy on a softwood surface = 1.9 oz per square foot.

Added weight for going from 4 to 6 oz = .4 oz per square foot.

This assumes an experienced builder. Inexperienced builders may end up using considerably more epoxy.

I'll leave it as an exercise for the reader to determine the number of square feet on a CH18 deck.

An interesting note is that 6 oz glass weighs .7 oz per square foot and 4 oz glass .5 oz per square foot. So over 2/3 of the weight is in the epoxy. Work neat!
