Time to cure to the point of losing immediate stickiness.
Compounding material used to enhance the property that causes contacting

testing or Sealant
Adhesive made by mixing two or more components that react chemically to form a
chemically crosslinked adhesive providing very high strength bonds and
outstanding performance characteristics. The most common two part adhesives are
epoxies, polyurethane's, acrylics, and silicones. Two part adhesives are able
to cure in the absence of air or moisture, and are often used to form
structural bonds to metal, wood and plastic components.
