##### Costing Calculator for Fibreglass Composites

per Square Meter

Product Code: | |

Product Description: |

##### 1. Calculate Total Square Meter Area:

Enter width and length in meters only eg. 10.54

Enter Width: | Enter Length: | Total Area: m² |

#### Weight and Cost of Fibreglass Materials

##### 2. Surface Tissue

Total m² x Layers x Weight per m² = Total Weight

Total m² x Layers x Cost per m² = Total Cost

Weight per m² eg. 25g = 0.025: Cost of Surface Tissue per m²: R Number of layers to be used: |
Total Weight: kg Total Cost: R |

##### 3. Chop Strand Mat

Total m² x Weight x Layers = Total Weight x Cost per KG = Total Cost

## 300gsm:No. of Layers: Cost per kg:R |

Total Weight: kg Total Cost: R |

## 450gsm:No. of Layers: Cost per kg:R |

Total Weight: kg Total Cost: R |

## 600gsm:No. of Layers: Cost per kg:R |

Total Weight: kg Total Cost: R |

##### 4. Woven Roving

Total m² x Entered Weight x Layers = Total Weight x Cost per KG = Total Cost

Weights entered in kg eg. 450gsm = 0.450

GSM 1: No. of Layers: Cost per kg:R |

Total Weight: kg Total Cost: R |

GSM 2: No. of Layers: Cost per kg:R |

Total Weight: kg Total Cost: R |

GSM 3: No. of Layers: Cost per kg:R |

Total Weight: kg Total Cost: R |

##### 5. Coremat

Total m² x Layers = Total m² x Cost per m² = Total Cost

Thickness entered in mm eg. 3mm = 3

When using Coremat

1mm 1m² = 600g Resin

2mm 1m² = 1.2kg Resin

3mm 1m² = 1.8kg Resin

4mm 1m² = 2.4kg Resin

5mm 1m² = 3.0kg Resin

MM 1: No. of Layers: Cost per m²:R |

Total m² 1: kg Total Cost: R |

MM 2: No. of Layers: Cost per m²:R |

Total m² 2: kg Total Cost: R |

#### Weight and Cost of Resin Required

##### 6. Gelcoat Required

Approximate quantity per m² is between 600gsm to 800gsm.

Calculation based on Entered gsm Gelcoat x Total Square Meters = Total Weight x Cost per kg = Total Cost

Enter grams per m² used eg. 0.60 to 0.80: kg Enter Cost of Gelcoat per kg: R |

Total Weight: kg Total Cost: R |

##### 7. Flowcoat Required

Approximate quantity per m² is between 600gsm to 800gsm.

Calculation based on Entered gsm Resin x Total Square Meters = Total Weight x Cost per kg = Total Cost

Enter grams per m² used eg. 0.60 to 0.80: kg Enter Cost of Flowcoat per kg: R |

Total Weight: kg Total Cost: R |

##### 8. Resin Required Ortho GP in Kg

(Ratio 2.5 to 1) for:

Enter Cost of Resin per kg: R
Surface Tissue: CSM 300gsm: CSM 450gsm: CSM 600gsm: Woven Roving gsm 1: Woven Roving gsm 2: Woven Roving gsm 3: Coremat MM 1: Coremat MM 2: |

Total Resin Weight: kg Total Resin Cost: R |

##### 9. Catalyst Required

(Total Weight in Kg) for:

Total Gelcoat / Flowcoat / Resin Weight x Input %

Enter Cost of Catalyst per kg: R
HOT 1% | MED 2% | COLD 3%
Enter Percentage to be used eg. 2.5: % Weight Gelcoat: kg Cost Gelcoat: R Weight Flowcoat: kg Cost Flowcoat: R Weight cat: kg Cost cat: R |

Total Weight Catalyst: kg
Total Cost Catalyst: R |

Total Weight of all above: kg
Total Cost of all above: R |

##### 10. Material Wastage at 10%

Material Wastage: R |

##### 11. Labour Cost

Enter Amount of Labourers eg. 2, How many Hours per Product eg. 3 and Cost per labourer per hour

Labourers: Hours per product: Cost per Hour: R |

Labourers Cost: R |

##### 12. Accessories - Wood, PU Foam, Glass, Hinges, Bolts, Rubbers etc.
