Once the drying process is taking place lowering humidity and increasing temperature will reduce drying times. Forced drying of temperature between 25 and 35°C and a relative humidity of down to 30% will promoted rapid drying. Air movement to remove local humidity is very important. An industrial fan as shown across will help with this and is highly recommended.
Assisted force drying can make very rapid drying and curing a possibility. An example of this is a catalytic IR (infra-red) drying equipment. When using this our Hydrolux exterior coating system can be dried at a rate of 20 minutes per coat. We have tested this with one of the leading manufacturers of this equipment.

On windows and doors where the wood suffers from lower movement thick layer stains or varnishes can be used as they can cope with the smaller movement. Anker Stuy woodstains do not form a thick film layer as this will peel and flake on items where there is appreciable movement. Our woodstain products have a lower film thickness so they will not peel and flake as the wood moves and flexes.
