Anything else?
In front of a heater?

It's a chemical reaction process, no way to accelerate it, and slower is stronger anyway

Wrap it in aluminium foil and gently "tickle" it with an oxy from a distance of about 15-20cm.

Do this for at least 12 minutes from an analogue watch, not a digital. Digital won't cure anything.

"tickle it" I quite like that expression. I think we've found Brian Westlake, who famously tickled Tiger's testicles.... haven't we THE BRIAN!!

Fascinatingly, polyester resin, once catalysed, continues to “cure” until it degrades and collapses, while epoxy resin sets and forgets.

Yep....it continues to get stronger until it starts to disintegrate. That's one of the things with plastics. The "plastic"...I.e. Flexible bit is fugitive to varying degrees. It eventually leaves and the unit becomes brittle and disintegrates.
