    Can someone explain curing to a newbie to pc? I understand that if the powder says cure at 10 minutes@375 that I should get the part up to 375 and keep it there for 10 minutes

    What I don’t understand is exactly what is going on besides the paint turning to a liquid state and flowing out smooth. What happens if I only cure for 5 minutes, does it just not flow out enough or is there some other effect? What happens if I go 15 minutes or longer? Does the paint start to harden even before letting it cool? If I reheat the part does the paint soften again?
