Cure times for OPT products


Recommended Posts

A&J, that's a pretty open ended question.  For some products, like ceramics, there are minimum cure times, but others are dependent on temperature and humidity.  Gloss-Coat is a minimum of 1 hour, but Wax, Seal, Opti-Bond dry/bond almost immediately.  For layering we suggest an hour wait.

Well, look at the pictures that show the water behaviour changing from 1.5h after application to a day after application.

No round beads at first, but later it beaded water very nicely, suggesting it still needed time to cure?

I can see what you mean Heijneker.

There is a visible difference. The next day the beads are tighter and round as oppose to the randomly  shapped beads of 1.5hrs after application.

I have no experience with opti-seal, just hyper-seal. And I haven’t done much testing with beading shortly after application.
