Correspondingly, how do you make silicone dry faster?

Yes, you can place a heat lamp about 3 feet (0.91 m) away from the silicone to help it dry faster. You can also use a hairdryer to blow hot air directly onto the silicone to help it dry faster. Keep the blow dryer at a moderate temperature and stay at least a foot away from the adhesive when blow-drying it.

Also, what happens if silicone gets wet before it cures? No! Silicones don't wash off in the rain. In fact, the more moisture the better. Silicone coatings are moisture cured, meaning the more moisture in the atmosphere, the faster they cure.

Beside this, how long does it take for silicone sealant to dry?
