Heat & JB Weld

Greetings to all.
Would the JB weld dry quicker if I apply heat to it? or the heat might slow the drying process?
Thank you.

I don't think so. I think the heat that is generated durring curing is more of a byproduct of curring and not the cure it's self. JMO

It' good to know about the JB Quick.
I'm in the middle of a small project, and I'm using the regular JB, so that is why I'm asking.
I was not aware of the existing of the JB quick.
Thank you all.

When you get done with your project and you have a mess to clean up I highly recomend Lift-Off No.4 to do the job. You can get it at Lowes or Home Depot , it is non toxic and it will clean JB weld from your hands or anywhere you might have inadvertently smeared it! I just installed some aluminum doublers on my Leatherlyke saddle bags to prevent them from cracking. Having the aircraft engineering mindset from 27 years at Boeing I decided to add an adhesive to the doublers even though the instructions did not call for it. I used a Boeing spec adhesive that is very strong but very messy and ended up with goop smeared everywhere. Lift Off cleaned it all up. I think it would also work on cleaning melted shoe soles from hot exhaust pipes too!

Usually a moderate amount of heat will increase the speed of set up.

From the JB Weld website:

"DRYING: Allow 4-6 hours for drying before handling. Allow to dry overnight (approximately 15 hours) before putting object to use. J-B WELD works faster if used in a room with a temperature above 50� F. After J-B WELD has cured for six hours, a heat lamp or light bulb placed near the weld will speed drying time."

I didnt have a heat lamp, per se, last time I use JB Weld so I used one of those single halogen work lamps and put it about 6 inches from the project...warmed it right up.
