Volkswagen Golf Service & Repair Manual: Minimum curing periods for bonded windows

  WARNING
There are special requirements for renewing bonded windows. One of these standards is, for example, that a freshly bonded windscreen must comply with the safety requirements, even in an accident, following the minimum prescribed curing period.
The minimum curing period for 2-component adhesive is 2 hours for all windows.
Minimum curing period is the time from bonding the window until vehicle may be used. During this time, the vehicle must stand on a level surface at room temperature (at least 15 °C).
  WARNING
It is safe to use vehicle only after the curing period is completed.
