its never taken more than 5 mins personally even on the cloudiest days, I give it 10 minutes just to be absolutely sure... maybe its because I live fairly close to the equator... dunnohalloi wrote:hold your horses take a deep breath and step back! 10 minutes!dylan* wrote:Or just use any kind of epoxy that cures in UV light like SunCure.

Due to bad night vision, double curved astigmatism paired with short-sightedness and a certain type of love for rocks, benches, shells and what not I am being forced to use my Suncure every bloomin' day which is why I know for "de la fact" that it takes AT LEAST 10 hours in cloudy/overcast skies to fully dry, especially if the wind conditions are perfect and its the number one favorite board.
just my 2 cents, suncure is tha bomb but 10minutes+cloudy?
alright keep walking guys, there is nothing to see here!
PS: love the superglue backing soda idea!
There's some plastics super glue doesn't adhere to. Its working on my carbon, bamboo. I'm only a couple of months in using this method. Not sure about the long term. its working so far.JakeFarley wrote:How long do the super glue/baking soda repairs last? Is it a permanent fix? Does it adhere well to all types of material?
Baking soda cures the superglue instantly which means no unwanted runs. plus and seams to add a tiny but of volume.Bushflyr wrote:Why the baking soda? If I have a ding small enough to use CA on, it's small enough not to need any filler. Also, doing this ensures you have 10x more work when you decide to do a proper fix. Much better to just epoxy it up properly, slap a piece of packing tape over the fix and wait a bit. Sure, you lose a bit of instant gratification, but in the long run you're much better off.
