    If you use activator it would be quicker, downside is it is quite expensive.

    I think I read somewhere it has a cure rate of 24 hours per 2mm thickness. I left it 24 hours before moving the van a very short distance and another 24 hours for good measure.

    When I fit panels I recommend 24 hours before moving the van. I now use Sikaflex 512 with activator.

    I`ve only ever used Sikaflex 512 and try to leave it a good 48 hours before moving, ideally fit friday and don`t move until monday at the earliest

    I also loosely cover overnight especially if a heavy dew is forecast for the first couple of days

    Had mine done a few years ago at a trade fair and was told it would be cured in a few hours, well it worked and has never come off.
