penetrating epoxy Cure time with acetone?

2 posts in this topic

I used Total Boat penetrating epoxy this morning with 1 part acetone added. This made a nice thin epoxy that I was able to paint carefully on a vertical surface that had rot damage and inject in pre-drilled holes.  As it appeared that the wood absorbed the epoxy I added new.  This went on for quite a while, and the epoxy remained workable for a long time, maybe an hour (at 70 degrees F, today).  My question is whether the cure time is longer because of the acetone and how much longer?  I will need a sandable surface to go on to the next step, which involves attaching another piece of wood using Flexepox. The normal day time temp here is usually 85-95 degrees.

 

Thanks

The addition of acetone shouldn't change the cure time.  At 85 - 95 degrees I would expect it to cure enough to be sanded in 24 hours or less.
