Let’s start by breaking dry time down into two categories:
- the amount of time before the customer can drive away
- the amount of time required for a full curing of the coating
Drive away time is the point at which the vehicle can be driven without damaging the coating. Air dry headlights at a minimum ambient temperature of 50° F for at least 60 minutes before the customer is allowed to drive their vehicle. We say “at least” because the exact temperature and humidity at the time of application may significantly increase dry time.
