Not sure, but I have a feeling the answer is …”kind of”

I believe, with Polyurethane, it is not only drying but also curing at the same time. I know extreme cold can slow drying times (less than 60 degrees) and I think extreme heat can make it dry too fast and cause problems as well.

I would get the piece inside at a comfortable room temperature and let the finish do it’s thing.

In the future you can get slightly faster results by cutting (mixing) the Poly with mineral spirits to make a Wipe on Poly.

Hope this helps! I’ll be interested to hear what some of our finishing pro’s have to say about speeding up the dry time.
