Volume Formula

  • Square or rectangular container: width x length x height = Volume
  • Circular and Oval containers: 1/2 diameter (radius) squared x 3.14 x height = Volume

Converting to Cubic feet: Use The Magic Number – 1,728

This is the number of cubic inches in 1 cubic foot (12″ x 12″ x 12″).

Small Cartons hold 3 cubic feet, Large Cartons and Bags hold 10 cubic feet.

Skids contain 10 bags on a single skid for better pricing and less shipping costs. Use this option if you need more than 4 large cartons but less than a truckload.

Check out shipping options for the best way to order.

Example 1: How much Sylvacurl is needed to fill 200 boxes that each measure 4″ x 8″ x 20″?

  • 4 x 8 x 20 = 640 cubic inches x 200 boxes = 128,000 cu/in
  • 128,000 divided by 1728 = 74 cu/ft of Sylvacurl.
  • 74/10 = 7.4 and round up
  • So you would need 8 large cartons, 8 bags, or 1 skid

Example 2: How much Sylvacurl is needed to fill 500 baskets that measure 6″ in diameter by 6″ high?

  • (1/2*6″)^2 x 3.14 x 6″ = 169.56 cu/in x 500 baskets = 84,780 cu/in
  • 84,780 divided by 1728 = 49 cu/ft of Sylvacurl.
  • 49/10 = 4.9 and round up
  • So you would need 5 bags or 5 large cartons!
