West System Pot Live VS Working Time

Stuart Johnson
Pot life (100g at 72°F)
20 to 25 minutes

Working time, thin film*
90 to 110 minutes

West system 105/206 shows the above pot and working life. Does that mean you apply it for 20 - 25 minutes after mixing but the pieces around for 90 - 110 minutes.

I will be doing what for me is a complicated glue up and if the 20 - 25 minutes is the time to apply I will probably need to go to the 209 hardener with almost double the time.
