Default Pitt tech dtm

I was wondering if any of you knew how quickly pitt tech acrylic satin dtm dried enough to not stick to itself. I'm needing to transport parts that I finished in my shop but I am worried about them sticking together.

It was a specd product that I do not have much experience with. I have always found that while acrylic dries quickly it doesn't cure as fast as oil at least it sticks to itself longer. Just wondering if any of you have experience with it.

Normally I would be on the safe side and tell people a week but this is for a large commercial customer in my area and they are wanting it sooner.

I just did some exterior handrails in Pitt Tech black satin. Took 2hrs to do 2 coats in cooler weather. It dries incredibly quickly (can be tooled after 45 mins) but stays soft for a long time. I suggest once finished blow heat on it for as long as possible.
