Default Re: permatex timing

I have a tube of it in my hand right now.
Reading the label:
"Silicone dries in 1 hour, and fully cures in 24 hours, at 70*F (21*C) - 50% relative humidity. Allow more time in cold weather."

Real world translation:
After 1 hour is has jelled. It is nowhere near cured yet.
If you want full strength and not risk failure under stress you must wait 24 hours.
"It's a chinagirl. It's a sometimes fun little engine that often will break your heart. It's disposable.

Does not come with a fortune cookie."
