Calculating your consumption of construction adhesives
Below you can carry out a test calculation for the theoretical consumption of construction adhesive in your project. This calculation is indicative only and no account is taken of the possible wastage of material.
Basic assumptions: The indicated sizes of the stone, the joint thickness to take into consideration, stretcherbond design, fully glued horizontal and vertical joint, approximately ½ cm recessed. If you are working with open vertical joints, this needs to be indicated. The percentage perforation of the stone surface also needs to be indicated. Course size = stone height + joint thickness. The calculation assumes that the vertical and horizontal joints are equally wide.
