With a first name like Chuck I cannot tell you how many times I’ve heard people say that ‘classic’ tongue twister about the woodchuck who could chuck wood. Actually, that’s a bit of the inspiration behind this week’s blog entry. I was trying to find the right words for how many pads can be made from a jar of our padding compound. It’s actually a question that we get asked every few months and we really haven’t had an answer until we did some research. The industry experts at the CFS Test Labs have put this question into play and have given us the following results.
One ounce of padding compound is sufficient to cover about 60 square inches. Now while that may sound like quite a large area, think of it this way – that’s an area 8.5 inches wide by 7 inches high. So, a quart of padding compound will cover 1920 square inches – or a stack of 8.5″ wide sheets that’s nearly 19 feet tall. That’s a big bunch of note pads! Put that way, you’re sure to get plenty of mileage from your quart of padding compound. And remember, a 2nd coating is really just putting glue on top of glue, it does not add any further adhesion.
