Default clear coat curring times

How long does clear coat ( in a base coat / clear coat system ) need to cure before the decals are applied to the body?

Someone correct me if Iam wrong but doesn't the clear cure due to a
chemical reaction? Unlike enamel or laquer that is solvent evaporation.
If that is true decals can be installed soon after a topcoat.
