Coverage depends on temperature (Epoxy resins before mixing act a little like honey - in that in summer, they are very runny while in winter they are very stiff) and so coverage can vary from as little as 250 grams per sq. mtr. per coat in summer to up to 1 ltr per sq. mtr .

This Ultra/Crystal Clear ART COAT Epoxy Resin we say is the best value high performing resin on the market because it can be used for so many applications
Please Note: As this product is a very pure epoxy. And it acts in a similar manner just like pure honey (pure epoxies act similar to honey in that, during winter, honey is extremely thick and yet in summer, that same honey is very thin and runny - cheaper alternatives use additives to dilute the strength). So to it is with epoxies. And just like pure honey which sometimes turns into sugar? Pure Epoxy resin can act in a similar way and develop crystals (usually in part A). This is not from faulty resin but common thought is that it is from the cyclic hot days and cold nights when stored. An easy fix is to heat the jugs up in very hot water for about 30 mins and this will restore the resin to be perfectly clear. That heating is also a good thing to help remove air bubbles trapped in the epoxy due to transportation.
If I have to do a critical pour or application, as a tip, I heat the jugs up the day before the application (only done once per jug at any time) and let them cool down for the day of my project. Additionally when mixing the two parts. I decant into the mixing container by pouring down the side of the container. All this effort is to try to limit any possible air bubbles that could ruin the finished product. Even when mixing, I use a wide rule and do not even take it off the bottom of the mixing container. Mixing is so important to get the best results and can take 3 to 5 mins. I also use 'flame' to help remove any bubbles that are generated when mixing to help them come to the surface.
Shelf life of epoxies is well over 24 months.
