# QUANTITY OF SHUTTERING OIL CALCULATION

The quantity of Shuttering oil calculation is straightforward and also very easy. Just need your little concentration. The shuttering Oil is essential in every temporary shuttering structure because shuttering oil works as a releasing agent between shuttering and the concrete.

Before calculating the shuttering oil quantity calculation, you must understand the following concepts.

## What is Shuttering Oil?

The shuttering Oil has a grease-type texture. It is used to provide a greasing to the top surface of the shuttering sheets/plates and receive a good and better finish after concrete gets its required strength.

Why do we use Shuttering Oil?

The shuttering Oil is used in wood and also in steel shuttering plates. By using shuttering Oil over the wood or steel plates/Sheets etc., the containers can remove very quickly when the concrete gets its desire strength. The shuttering Oil helps us to receive a smooth and better finish of the concrete surface.

For your better understanding, let us solve this example.

## Quantity of Shuttering oil Calculation Formula

EXAMPLE:

Suppose we have a shuttering surface area 200 meters square, and the surface of the formwork is pigment-free.

1. Calculate the required oil for wood shuttering and their price?

2. Also, calculate the required oil for steel shuttering plates and their price?

Given Data:

Shuttering Area = 200 Meters square.

Shuttering Surface = Pigment Free.

The quantity of oil =?

Solution:

The calculation of shuttering oil is done into two parts. First, we calculate the quantity of shuttering oil for wood shuttering, and then we calculate the steel shuttering.

### Wood Shuttering:

For pigment-free wood shuttering. By practical experience and practice, it is assumed that 1 Litter shuttering oil can cover up to 30 to 40-meter square Area in pigment-free wood shuttering.

Shuttering oil = Total area / 1 litter oil covering area.

= 200 / 30.

6.67 litters Ans…

For wood shuttering price calculation, we must know the price of 1 litter shuttering oil. Suppose the one litter shuttering oil price is 300 Rs/-

Price = (Required oil) Multiply by (1 litter shuttering oil price).

= 6.67 x 300

2001 Rs/- Ans…

### Steel Shuttering:

By our experience and daily practice. It is assumed that the 1 Litter shuttering oil can cover up to 60 to 70-meter square Area in pigment-free steel plates.

Shuttering oil = Total area / 1 litter covering area.

= 200 / 60

3.34 Litters Ans…

For steel shuttering price calculation, we must assume or known the price of 1 litter shuttering oil. Suppose the one litter shuttering oil price is 400 Rs/-

Oil Price = (Required oil) X (1 litter shuttering oil price).

= 3.34 x 400

1336 Rs/- Ans…

So in the pigment-free wood shuttering, the oil will be required about 6.67 litters, and in steel shuttering, it is approximately 3.34 litters.

Note: These quantities are approx quantity, not a fixed quantity, but it is slightly more or less to the actual amount.
