Drying Time

Rate this topic

6 posts in this topic

Depends on the conditions. If it's spring or summer and a nice day, it can be dry to the touch in about four hours. In the cold, I've set the motor to shut off in six hours and still had the epoxy sag. If it's in the house and has a decent climate (60-70 degrees) Five hours turning time should be plenty safe. I wait a full day before I hand the rod to a customer.

I known that epoxy cures in that short of time to some percentage of fully cured, 90-95%?

 

If I remember right from a boat building project, it takes seven days for it to cure to 100%

 

I was just wondering if that last 5-10% makes any difference?

I don't doubt it can be fished, but I prefer to wait a week or so anyway, just to be on the safe side. FOr my own rods, I could care less, and will fish them whenever I need to, and if that means a day after teh epoxy hardened, then so be it.
