    I would say between 48 to 72 hours
    Curing time should be enough.
    But let's hear from the more experienced guys:blush:

    @Nella is correct, between 48 to 72 hrs should be enough time to cure. Some guys go between 24 to 48 hrs but the longer the better the curing process.

    2 weeks at least. Silicone on tank with thick beeding takes long to cure.

    i was told 1 day = 1 mm
    ie, 10 mm thick glass you need 10 days curing.
