Why are drying and curing times important?
It may be important to know what the adhesive’s drying and curing times are to avoid major problems. When there is too much water in the mattress and the mattress is then packed, this increases the chances of mold formation. This is caused by potential condensation on the inside of the packaging. Mold creates nasty odors and an unhygienic end-product. This is why sometimes it is useful for producers to be aware of the drying and curing times before the mattress is packed. Another option is to pack the mattress in a roll, whereby the film is tightly wound around the mattress. This method prevents mold formation and makes the drying and curing times insignificant.
