Evan-using System 3 Silvertip xtra slow. They told me 140F for 2 hours. I figured 155 was the max my tent would ever hit. Maybe I need to ratchet the high number down some?

Fuzz-tds is technical data sheet

I will try to get the tds uploaded

Ok - what I know and recommend about post curing:

- slow ramp rates (increasing & decreasing temp rate of change) are good
- fast ramp rates may lead to part distortion
- 155F probably isn't going to hurt anything but I'd stick with S3's recommendation.
- 140F / 2 hrs is a pretty mild post cure. It will improve resin properties but nothing much (10-15% probably)
- do get a few remote reading thermometers inside the oven
- do use a circulating fan that can withstand high heat to ensure even mixing of air and thus even temps in the oven.
