I would think that it would have something to do with the first and second coat bonding together.
I did put the second coat on as soon as the due was burned off and the surface was dry.
I really think we are ok.
I did a test panel last night and put a second coat on it first thing in the morning and there was no undesirable effects.
Because of the cool overnight temperatures, the first coat on the roof was dry to the touch, but you could tell that it was not full cured which what I think they wanted.
The directions state the second coat should be applied when the first coat was "dry to the touch" (that is a quot from the instructions).
They may have wanted the whole application done in one day just to have all the surfaces really clean.
I will give Dicor a call in the morning and go over what I did and see what they say (and post the answer here).
I am currently writing the web page on this project and it should be completed in a day or so. There are still some housekeeping projects that need to be done before the weather goes away on Wednesday. When the web page is done I will also post the project in my project thread here and place a link to it in this thread.
We had 72 degrees here today so the paint had good weather to cure in today and we will have similar weather tomorrow.
The picture below is of the roof with the second coat on. The first coat looked good, but when we applied the second coat you could tell the the first coat needed the second coat to fully seal the roof.
Note, the two "spots" in the roof are leaves that fell on the roof after the second coat. I do not think they are stuck and I am not going to walk on it to remove them.
