This will depend upon the tile size, joint width and depth and the grout coverage figure, which for Ardex-Flex FS is 1.5.
Use the following to estimate the approximate grout requirements for square or rectangular tiles:-
Stage (all measurements in mm)
1. ADD length and breadth of tile together.
2. MULTIPLY result by joint width.
3. MULTIPLY result by joint depth.
4. MULTIPLY result by Grout Coverage Figure (i.e. for Ardex-Flex FS, this is 1.5).
5. DIVIDE result by length of tile.
6. DIVIDE result by breadth of tile.
The result is the material requirement in kg per sq. metre.
