Gluvit over small amount of 5200?
Wondering how soon is safe to apply Gluvit after applying small amounts of 5200.

I have replaced some leaky rivets on the keel of my jon boat. When I did I applied some 5200 to the rivets and holes they were being installed in. Only a small amount of 5200, nothing "Caulked" on. I know the 5200 is not fully cured for 7 days. Would it safe to apply gluvit, on the rivets, both interior and exterior, prior to the full 7 days, or will that prevent the 5200 from fully curing?

Thank you for any insight.

5200 is a moisture curing urethane. Moisture in the air reacts with the 5200 starting and continuing the curing process. To speed this process upo, some have been known to spray a little water on the adhesive. Heat does not increase cure rate.

If you plan will prevent 5200 from being in contact with air, it will hinder the cure.
