It can take weeks, months even, for paving to properly dry out, depending on the site location and the method and materials used in construction. No matter how stressed you may be, it will NOT happen overnight.
Alrat - I've worked with professionals, DIYers, handymen and the terminally incompetent when using a 2-part, and as long as they are following instruction, there has never been a problem with timing or ease of use. The only time I see or hear of difficulties is when there has been too little water used during installation.....usually because they either "know it all" or haven't bothered reading/viewing the guidance.
There is no technical reason why a good 2-part should be any more difficult to install than a typical 1-part polymeric. The working life of a properly prepared 2-part should be in the 20-30 minutes region, and, to be honest, if even the most cack-handed DIYer can't sweep in a slurry mortar over 12-18m≤ of flagstone paving in half an hour, then they really oughtn't be allowed out of the house!
