You should learn to admit when you're wrong. Doubling down in the face of glaring evidence isn't a good look.
To the original poster; You tried it the way marko & verbal voiced and did not get a sandable hotcoat. You've got nothing to lose by walking it out in direct sunlight for a count of ten next time. If my method doesn't work you're not any worse off. If you rehotcoat this board using MEK in a normal dose, it will be sandable. Give it a try. Like I said; Ten seconds in UV won't make things any worse compared to what you've got now.
That which can be assorted without evidence was read in an illegal magazine.
Just be sure to wait five minutes to let the wax rise to the top as both Solarez and Surfsource advise. Don't listen to bad info. Seek out the manufacturer. Do not.....I repeat.....do not immediately take it out in the sun after brushing it out. LOL!
SolarRez buys Silmar and repackages it with UV powder from suppliers like Duratek. So who is the manufacturer? SolarRez doesn't manufacture anything. They repackage.
Shark man, I tell you, The Ding is King!!!
We all shall bow! The Ding knows all!
Get out your straws and blow! (Ha!)
Repeat after me. The Ding is King! The Ding knows all!
Ok. If you say so; "The Ding is King". Lol out your a$$. Haha
Haha! If I wanted a gummy mess. I'd wait five minutes. Lol! If I were wrong I'd admit it. There wasn't any internet or YouTube for surfboard builders when I learned to do this shit. Unlike you, I got my lessons from people who did it for a living and knew what they were doing.
To the original poster:
1. Make sure you are adding wax solution and not styrene. Make sure your wax solution hasn't separated or the wax solidified. Also, I've gotten wax additive from different suppliers that was drastically different Some thick and oily and the one I prefer that is thin like water Follow the ratios on the instructions
2. Make sure you are adding the right amount of wax solution.
3. If you are buying pre-mixed sanding resin be sure to shake the hell out of the can. (You also could have a can that wasn't given the right amound of wax solution or got mislabled) If you don't shake the can prior to each use you could get completely different results throughout the life of the can
4. Brush it on quickly and evenly, cross brush it out and give it a quick nose to tail and walk away. Overbrushing will brush the rising wax right off of the board.
5. Wait a few minutes to let the wax rise (exactly as both Surfsource and Solarez recommend) and take it into the sun. I've always done five minutes and have never had a sticky hot coat or gloss. If its blazing mid-day sun go in and out of some shade to slow down the reaction.
6. Be careful of bad information on the web. When in doubt check with the maker of the product you are using.
Let's please not do this. Stick to the subject. Our interests are in what does/doesn't work, and everyone knows there is often more than one solution. If you're going to express your disagreement with an opinion then stick to the content itself, not the individual expressing it.
I was talking about that very possible one problem was the lack of the right amount of wax; I mentioned that no matter if the resin has the UV powder if you do not have the wax always be tacky.
Regarding let the wax rise or the other way around; both work however, is safier let the rise wax for a moment then go to the oven. That is the way almost all the big factories do; they not brush the hot coat then go to the oven then remove the board to the rack again then go again to the oven...
