OCW Cure time

4 posts in this topic

I was looking to use OCW as a drying aid and also for its protection. My question is if there is a cure time (like normal waxes or sealants) or if it is 100% ready to be topped off with carnauba wax once dry. Thanks!

There are varying opinions about cure time (surprise).  I've had no problem using Wax as drying aid and then applying a separate coat immediately.  Some who apply 2 coats of Spray Wax suggest an hour cure time.  Heat and humidity have a lot to do with cure time.  Two other conditions can cause hazing - applying in direct sunlight and using too much product.

I think another issue is the type of wax you are applying after OCW.  A traditional paste wax may contain enough solvents to weaken or remove the OCW.  Of course, some may suggest you may be happy with OCW on its own
