This gelcoat needs 24 hours at room temperature (20 Celcius) and then 10 hours on 60 degrees Celcius. This box is only for the gelcoat, the real negative mold gets the Aerospace silicone heating blanket underneath. The materials can handle 120 degrees Celcius and the final real body will be baked at 70 degrees Celcius, that will give me a buffer zone of 50 degrees, so it should not warp or schrink or expand. It is sort of like an amp and speakers, if the amp is 100 watt, the speakers should be able to do 150 watt, even if you never turn it up 100%.
