Antifoul - Coverage per Liter Guesstimate

Can anybody come up with a general guide on coverage rate for antifoul using roller to apply ? Knowing the DTF does not really help you buy the right amount of paint, or does it ?

Paint #1 will cover more than Paint #2, properly applied.

Every bottom paint I've ever purchased specifies how much a given amount should cover. It's printed right on the paint can itself.

About 8-10 sq metres per litre depending on which type of roller you use. We find the best roller to use is a 4" Mohair easier on the arms and less waste. Regards Pete
