How long to wait before putting eternabond over fresh dicor

I replaced my faulty Fantastic Fan with a new Maxxair. Installed it and sealed the edges and screw holes with dicor as per the instructions.
I previously had eternabond around it and I want to reapply it. How long should I wait?
(I did search through a lot of threads but didnít see an answer!)

this is a guess on my part I think I would wait at least 72 hours or longer before covering. Myself I would just leave the decor if it covered good. JMHO

I def want to get eternabond on. It was on the old one and it looks awful now without it!
Thanks!

as long as the Dicor is semi-liquid and not yet hard to the touch I would leave the eternabond off... personally I would have put a piece of two-sided butyl tape under the fan edge, then applied the eternabond and skipped the dicor altogther...

Yea, I didnít use my brain in that one. Lol the instructions said dicor and I blindly followed them 🤣

Vote 2 for me too. I would have done eternabond first (probably only) then added dicor where needed. But I am certainly no expert.

Putting Eterna bond over dicor

If the weather is between 50 and 70 Degrees Fahrenheit, the Dicor Self Leveling Lap Sealant takes 5 minutes to skin over and is waterproof after 4 hours. After 48 hours, the sealant is about 80% cured. It can take up to 30 days to cure to 100%. I would not lay tape over till the dicor is cured.
