Drying Time

Drying Time

When the optimum Drying time is not sufficient due to various factors, it results in defects.

Possible Causes


Humidity Factor / Humid Weather Use heat and wait for the humidity to settle down.
Cold weather Ensure that the drying area is at room temperature.
Oily and unclean wood • Clean wood using solvent wipes.
• Use barrier coat for oily wood as an alternative.
Prolonging of drying due to oil stains Use non-oil based stains
No air movement Ensure proper ventilation.
Trying to Fill Open Grain wood with heavy coat of sealer actually traps the solvent in the pores. Use filler or high solids sealers like polyester or polyurethane to fill pores.
