The drying and cure times specifications do not take wind velocity or air movement under consideration. But air movement, especially under highly humid conditions, helps sealer dry faster than without any air movement. A light breeze assists in the dissipation of the water and volatiles from the immediate area. Conversely, under low humidity conditions (below 20-25%) the air movement might cause the sealcoat to dry a bit too fast.
