Lacquer is a film finish that dries rather than cure. It is based on lacquer thinner, a mixture of solvents, that is very voitile. Most lacquer dries to the touch and can be handle in about a half hour. It does not fully harden for about a week though.How long does it take for rustoleum clear lacquer spray paint to cure?
about 2 wks
The 30 minute statement is strictly for handling. Most coatings I use can be handled between 30 minutes and 4 hours but total cure is 24 hours. Humidity will also affect the cure time. The higher the humidity the longer the cure takes. Temps should be above 55 degrees also.
It is not really a lacquer. ...but a fast dry enamel.


Depends how thick you put it on, the temperature of the painting surface and air temp and moisture content.


For waxing purposes, give it 48 hours to dry thoroughly hard.
