How Long Does It Take For Coats Of Oil-Based Or Alkyd Paint To Dry?

Glidden Team:
How long does alkyd/oil paint take to dry between coats?

Product Manager and PPG Paint Specialist: 
The majority of alkyd/oil paints, when applied at room temperature, will be dry set-to-touch within six to eight hours and may be recoated within 16 hours, but it is really dependent on the specific product. Poor ventilation, low temperatures, thick films and high humidity will increase these times.
