Set Time Test Methods
Set Time Test Method
Fast
0.50 min The minimum amount of time required between when the bond is made and when it will support a 5 psi tensile load., Open times and set times are based on a room temperature environment. High temperatures will lengthen open times and set times while lower environmental temperatures will shorten open times and set times.
