Polymeric Sand - How long till it drys and hardens?
 
I used polymeric sand (Alliance Gatorsand/Supersand) for the first time yesterday and was careful not to overwater. I finished with my second quick misting of the sand at about dusk. (7:30PM EST) In total I did 2 "coats" of water for probably 45-60 seconds total for the entire patio.

This morning the sand is still pretty wet. Granted there obviously hasn't been any sun to dry it out.

When should I expect this stuff to harden? I have done a quick google search and it says that overall it should harden in 24 hours so I should be alright I hope.

Anyone have any experience with this stuff?

Answer is about 24 hours for normal gaps and a little longer for larger gaps for those interested.

My patio is firming up nicely after 24 hours.
