Paint Conversions & Measurements

Need to find how big a paint bottle is in your part of the world compared to another to know how big or small the jar is according to another country's terms of measurement? How big or small is that paint jar?


Here's a handy chart to bookmark in your browser for your next paint order that will convert a measurement of paint from one country to another.


Here are some Conversion Tools that may help.


Rough Quick Chart:


                    75 (ml) Milliliter = 2.5 (oz) Ounces
                  120 (ml) Milliliter = 4 (oz) Ounces
