  • min. 4 minutes @ 68°F / 20°C
  • min. 8 minutes @ 50°F / 10°C

The working time depends on the ambient temperature. The lower the temperature, the slower the material sets, and the higher the temperature, the faster the setting time.

The following general rule applies:

  • A temperature increase of 18°F / 10°C halves the working and setting time
  • A temperature decrease of 18°F / 10°C doubles the working and setting time
