How Much Do You Need To Purchase?


Regarding Density Per Pound or... How Much Pitch Do You Need....


I did multiple actual volume and density testing, verifying the results using different containers, to figure the quantity of pitch one would need.

 

 

For a flat bottomed pitch bowl (or bowl filled partially with concrete/plaster) that has a 1" deep and 8" diameter space to fill, it would take an estimated (2.71) 3 lbs of pitch to fill that area.

For a flat bottomed pitch bowl (or bowl filled with partially with concrete/plaster) that has a 2-1/2" deep and 8" diameter space to fill, it would take an estimated (6.8) 7 lbs of pitch to fill that area.


Please note that the containers I used were fairly symetrical in shape, versus a bowl that tapers in toward the bottom.   This information is only meant to give you an idea of where to start with regard to how much pitch to order.  

 

MATH CALCULATIONS:

 

For Square or Rectangular Containers:

WIDTH x HEIGHT x DEPTH = Cubic Inches

Cubic Inches x 0.055 = _____ lbs to *fill the container

 

For Round Containers:

AREA = Pi  (3.1415) x R2 (Radius Squared)

AREA x Depth = Cubic Inches

Cubic Inches x 0.055 = ______ lbs to *fill the container. 

 

 

*NOTE: The calculations above are based on a flat bottom container.  However it should get you close enough to figure the amount to fill a bowl with a rounded bottom. 

*NOTE:  Be sure to order enough to not only fill your bowl, but also some extra to use to fill the voids as you raise your design and flip your piece over to do the chasing work. 

 

The values to use in your own math calculation are an average of 0.055 lbs per cubic inch.

Make sure you order a little extra to use to fill in the relief as you work your way through your design.

**Please allow up to an 1/8" settling as the pitch cools in your bowl.**
