The high strength one that I use on heaters is 1 hour cure to full strength.

1 hour for full strength - why do you ask? It's the A70 stuff from here.

I wasn't sure whether to let the stud lock cure before reassembling the bracket (and risk breaking the stud lock during reassembly) or assemble everything and let the stud lock cure in the assembled position. I went for the latter in the end.
