    First time Cquartz UK application. Feeling sticky

    I preppped a portion of my car. To get a hang of the coating. When I applied it, it was feeling very sticky. The applicator was sticking to the paint. I read in one of a thread that it does not need to flash before wiping. Wiping was easy. No stickiness in that.

    Am I doing anything wrong?

    Temperature must have been around 30 degrees C. Humidity not sure. But must not be on higher side.

    What did you do to prep the paint?

    Washed the area. Used Meg Compound. Washed again. Used Carpro Essence. And then coating.

    Your prep sounds ok. Maybe thinner coats. Sometimes I even get heavy handed which will cause the coating to get grabby.

    At that temp just do a small area. You need to work fast in the Warmer/humid temps. It will flash quick. CQ’UK’ was designed originally for cooler/damper climates like the ‘UK’. I used it on cars in Florida, but had to do little areas at a time.
