Heating urethane

Whats the scoop on force drying urethane?
I thought I saw somwhere that you shouldn't get
it to hot when heating the panel after spraying.
Is there a temperature of the panel that I shouldn't exceed?

In a booth its usually 140 for 45 minutes. Depends on the clear.check the tech sheet. Thats different then putting it in the sun. I have put panels in the summer sun and checked them with an IR thermometer and the panels have gotten around 120. But i have seen the sun do some weird things to fresh paint when trying to force dry.

I thought it was around 130... If the bake booth is 140, metal temp should be around 10 degrees cooler

Actually with Diamont they say surface temp 140 for 45 min. So we set our booth at 160 to achieve a surface temp of 140.
