How long does it take for aluminum paint to dry? How long does it take for aluminum paint to dry?
Aluminum paint, unless it contains some extra color pigmentation, should dry in about the same period of time as non-aluminum paint. In other words, if you are painting on a warm day, it should take about an hour for it to become tacky and another hour for it to become hard. If it contains some extra pigmentation, it might take a tad longer, but in general these are good guidelines for aluminum paint. By the way, there are some quick-dry aluminum paints out there that offer drying within 15 minutes or less, although they are not high-gloss.
