* With our 4 kilo pails and a new and improved Flake formula our Flake coverage rate has now been improved from 12sqm per 4 kilos up to 15sqm per 4 kilo pails. Coverage rates will vary on the broadcasting techniques of the flakes from light to heavy.
Our pails are packed and hold 4 kilos in all ranges of Flake, the exception of our Stone Grip which is still packed in 5kg, and our Classic XL is now in 3kg pails.
We have also been working on our flake production over the past couple of years to improve quality control, and in doing so we have improved our formulation and production times. This has in turn made our Flakes more efficient in making our Flakes lighter, providing better coverage and less quantity needed per job, hence our new claims of up to approximately 15sqm per 4kg pail. (Depending on the broadcaster)
The 15sqm coverage for the 4kg of Flakes is a conservative claim as our broadcasting test results did achieve up to 18sqm on most blends. (Once again, all depending on the broadcaster and their individual preferred techniques)
The 4kg pail has been widely accepted and preferred for safer transporting. Delivering quality Flakes from our factory to you in perfect order when arriving at its destination. (These plastic hard pails have been sourced to help in minimizing the breaking down of the flakes in transporting)
Coverage rate are: (considering broadcasting techniques)
4 kg pail up to 15sqm
5 kg pail (stonegrip) up to 10 sqm
3 kg pail (Classic XL) up to 15 sqm

*(disclaimer) Glow Flakes are charged by either natural sun or powered lights, once the light has gone out the Glow effect will eventually dissipate over time until the lights go back on and the recharging of the glow Flakes starts again, the time for the glows dissipation in the Glow Flakes will depend on the amount of time the Glow Flakes have been exposed to the light and the amount or size of the Flakes. Glow Flakes are more a safety aspect of your floor and act as a safety feature so you can see the floor surface when the lights go out.
