  • 24 hours enough dry time before cooking steaks at high temps?

    Yes. The Permatex hardens to the touch in 1 hour, but according to the manufacturer it requires a chemical cure which takes 24 hours. External heat will not speed it along. So after 24 hours then HAVE AT IT!

    Just want to send kudos to Ron.  Emailed him and he put Rutlands in the mail for my L and XL same day.  That's what brothers do. Thanks again Ron!  @RICHIED777, reasonably clean, not dirty.

    Hey Richie...the surface should be reasonable clean and have no residual adhesive from the prior gasket otherwise there's a good chance the Permatex couldn't grab. Did you pick up one of those 3M wheels or a similar product to chuck into a 1/4" electric drill like I talk about in the instruction sheet? Using that cleans it up just fine! And then if you really want to finish cleaning use a pumice stone and NOT one you swipe from Wendy!
