Drying Time????

Not open for further replies.
ive been searching the stickies for about a half hour now and can still not find anything about the resins drying time (although im sure its out there somewhere). i just finished resining the out side of my helm.

So could anyone help me out here please?

Um where its drying it is about 50 degrees F with low humidity just in case those are any factors in drying time.

With the right amount of hardener, two hours. It should be hard enough to handle after two hours, although it might still have a bit tackiness and smell. I usually give my resin/fiberglass coats at least 4 hours with lots of air circulation to be really dry.

i didnt have to much to cover on my marine helmet so i put a few extra drops of hardner, im doing a few peices at a time and it starts to become hard within 20 minutes

but to completely harden, yeah probally 2 hours, but id wait a day ( if its good outside ) before i bring it inside
dang 8 hrs - a week that sux. i just checked it and its still a lil wet.
should i bring it inside or something its about 70 degrees F in here?

If you have a respirator for everyone in the house, then bring it inside, if you love your family, leave it outside.
