    I need to apply the above onto my wooden floor. Instruction says 9 parts of the solution to 1 part water. It then says coverage 125 m2 / 25 litres (approx).
    The confusing thing is that primer solution comes as a 25 litre bottle.

    Would that coverage assume the the solution is in diluted form or would that be the amount the 25 litre undiluted container could cover?

    How do I work out how much solution I need to make for e.g. 30m2 area and separately 13m2 area?

    Is it 125m2 (coverage) / 30m2 = factor of 4.166
    What then?

    Would the increase in volume be 10/9

    ie 25 litres x 10/9 =27.77litres

    you need 0.125 litres x 30m2 = 3.75 litres

    The absorbtion rate range is probably quite large, so I would just make a bit more and not worry whether its calculated at full strength or diluted.

    If that was me I'd probably half fill a bucket which is about 5 litres and then put in a little less than 2 mug full of water which are around 250-300ml each.
