    I bought some of this and have been using it. Does anyone know if it has a cure time, so I can move fittings around within a certain time frame, then leave to finally set?
    I rang their technical service but got a...... ...we will call you back message :)
    Cheers.

    Checking the Q and A’s on the screwfix site it seems if the joint is in brass approx 3 hrs to cure if zinc plated steel or stainless then cure time is 72 hrs and can vary with temperature as well

    I just whack it on and fill the system or turn water on etc. If the joint is made correctly it wont leak, unless you are assembling something like a long screw?
