A standard 10.1 oz cartridge (tube) contains 18.3 cubic inches of sealant. The yield for this tube depends on the cross sectional area of the joint to be filled. To determine the yield, first estimate the cross sectional area of the sealant joint (sq. in.s) and multiply by 12. This is the approximate cubic inches per lineal foot of sealant joint. The yield per tube in lineal feet is equal to 18 divided by the cubic inches per lineal foot.
The same procedure is performed to determine the yield of 20 ounce sausage paks (chubs), 36.6 cubic inches per sausage and quart size cartridges (tubes), 27 ounce fill has 48.7 cubic inches per tube while 30 ounce fill has 54.1 cubic inches per tube.
The Tremco Incorporated website provides an east to use calculator to simplify the estimating process.
