How much Core Glow do I need to cover my x? (x = driveway, pathway, pool, roof, staircase, etc.)

 

Read on for a general guide for all of our products. Note that the recommended coverage guidelines can be tweaked to match your aesthetic preferences and budget requirements. 

 

1. Core Glow Commercial Grade Marble (Natural Stone)

Use Core Glow Commercial Grade Marble (Natural Stone) for indoor & outdoor projects; driveways, patios, paths, countertops, flooring, and more. Ideal for permanent projects made with cement, concrete, and asphalt.

Core Glow Commercial Grade Marble (Natural Stone) is available in two sizes: 3-8mm and 8-15mm. We recommend mixing the two sizes to get a large range of glow chips in your project. Just like stars in the night sky vary in size and brightness, the different sizes of the glow stones will create an illusion of depth to your surface. 

Coverage Type Amount of Core Glow Commercial Grade Marble (Natural Stone) Needed Description
Complete 1lb per 1 sq ft Entire surface covered in glow stones, incredibly bright glow, visible from afar.
High 1lb per 16 sq ft 'high density dispersed
coverage', giving a strong glow and bright starlight effect (as seen above)
Medium 1lb per 32 sq ft 'medium density dispersed
coverage', giving a medium glow and relaxed starlight effect
Medium-Low 1lb per 64 sq ft 'low-medium density
dispersed coverage', giving a gentle glow and light starlight effect
Low 1lb per 128 sq ft 'low density dispersed coverage', giving a subtle glow and soft starlight effect
