Cure and Clean Up

Cure

  1. Place infiltrated parts on a non-stick surface such as wax paper, freezer paper, or Teflon®. If liquid pools under the part, move the part so it will not adhere to the surface.
  2. Allow part to cure at ambient temperature for 2 hours or until the exothermic reaction has completed (meaning the part is no longer sticky). Failure to do so may result in bubbling or uneven color in the part when curing in an oven.
  3. Then cure either:
  • In oven at 70°C (160°F) for 2 hours.
  • At ambient temperature for 24 hours.
  1. Wear gloves when handling parts at elevated temperatures. Parts are safe to touch after they have cooled to room temperature.

Clean Up

Keep any remaining mixed materials and soiled paper towels under a ventilated hood until they have cured and cooled to room temperature. They are then safe to dispose of in regular trash.
