Yes. KK 2000 does dissipate more quickly in drier climate than in humid climates. But it ultimately does dissipate within 2 to 5 days. It is air soluble (as opposed to water soluble products which are more familiar to most of us). It dissipates with air fairly quickly, as mentioned, but it can be hurried along with heat (like a warm iron, or a warm dryer). When combining air soluble and water soluble products it's important to let the KK 2000 dissipate before wetting, hence the desire to hurry the process with heat, before applying water.
Likewise, it can be kept sticky longer by putting the project in ziplock bag and squeezing most of the air out before closing. I have found it can retain its stickiness for weeks, even months sometimes when you do this. But once it's gone, it's gone. You can reapply KK 2000 again if this happens and you need to to hold longer.
