VS721 Dry Time


Victor Bolton asked:

i am trying out you VS721 bottom cote, is the 48 hour wait time critical after the 2nd coat? can it be less if it is applied in dry, warm, windy conditions with very low humidity. Thank you.

Hi Victor

The dry time for VS721 is not critical, but if allowed to cure in air for a minimum of 48 hours we find that the longivity is greater. The weather conditions you describe will help but by splashing the boat early you may sacrifice some effective life and therefore have to reapply it a bit earlier than if it had properly cured. In some cases, where the season is short, this will not be a factor

Thanks for your question,
