Aluma-Hyde II epoxy based finish dries to the touch in only minutes and reaches full cure in about a week. Here's the way we apply it: Warm the part and the Aluma-Hyde II to about 90 degrees. Spend a couple of minutes shaking the daylights out of the Aluma-Hyde II and apply a medium coat for good coverage. You can recoat in a few minutes but don't wait more than thirty minutes. Once Aluma-Hyde II starts curing, you must wait until it's fully cured to recoat. You can cut the cure time to approximately two days by circulating warm air past the part. Absolutely no primer coat is required for a tough, durable, abrasion-resistant, rustproof finish that blends beautifully and compliments all gun finishing applications.
