black permatex curing time?

Used black permatex to make the seal on my differentials... how long before I can add fluid and how long before I can drive it?

I've never waited and never had a problem.

I've always filled mine within 5 minutes of installing the cover. Never had a problem.

Never really wait for mine. Normally just like 5-10 minutes and go grab a drink cause it makes me feel better. Other than that no problems with anything.
