Just wondering- today I coated the inside of a steel can with epoxy as a barrier against moisture. Normally a full 24 hours is suggested before putting it to use. I've had it in the oven at 150F for about five hours today, and it's been out for a couple hours. It's completely tack free and has no smell left whatsoever.
Anybody have a rough guestimate about relating temperature to cure time? How far along am I now by comparison to room temperature cure? Have I got the equivalent of a day or so into it?
It is a container for a one-shot wood glue applicator. I have the pump almost complete, and I'm basically at the point of using 5 min epoxy to glue the cover on the can. The can is the bottom half of a 1 lb propane tank. I'm going to work on it some more, then take a few pics if my camera has power.
I can look stuff up like anyone else, but I thought maybe somebody would know this off the top. Maybe also there's a proper or maximum temperature to use for fast curing without damaging the coating or compromising the bond.
