    Well, as far as the actual experimentation goes, you will have to devise something yourself.
    As far as the principle goes, it is that temperature increases the effective kinetic energy of the particles which then collide with energy equal to or greater than the energy of activation required for commencing the reaction.
    The net result is that now when two reactant particles collide, they have energy equal to the energy of activation, and the reaction can take place.
    Which signifies that an increase in temperature should increase the rate at which the adhesive dries.
