Tacky Perma Gloss

I have an older rod that needed the guides replaced. While removing the guides (first time) I damaged the finish. I ordered up some Perma Gloss and first applied it using a technique involving a hole cut into some neoprene and slid down the blank. That was messy and the finish was uneven. It ended up being really thin at the butt end, almost non-existent, and thick at the tip. I changed the way I was applying and got more even results, but it was still tacky even after sitting overnight. I removed that and reapplied. After a couple of hours, it's still sticky. Although I am not giving up hope that it will set, is there anything I can do to help it cure if it doesn't take care of itself?

What's the relative humidity where you live, zero? Never heard of Permagloss not setting up within 20-30 min. You either have a bad batch or it has been contaminated with something. Maybe the finish on the old blank is causing the contamination.

Put a tea kettle on and let it steam the room for a few minutes. Or set the rod somewhere the humidity is a bit higher.

Is it possible that the Permagloss is attacking the previous finish on the rod? And the combination of the Permagloss and the damaged finish is remaining tacky?

I live in Houston. The humidity stays about 900% most of the time. I suppose it's possible. I felt I did a fairly decent job of getting it cleaned up. I roughed it up with an abrasive pad then wiped it down several times with a lint free cloth and alcohol.

I suppose anything is possible.

I've got it in the bathroom with a tub full of HOT water.

what type of finish is the original ?? how old is the rod ?? if it is some type of lacquer based finish the PG is probably eating in to it causing the problem it will eventually harden or it might just remain tacky
It does sound like a contamination issue you might have to resort to removing the PG and the under lying finish to get a good result JMHOP

It seems like the sauna did the trick. Thanks for all the input.

Just for laughs - never use alcohol before a finish -- Sand - Wash - then use a fine scoff pad and clean with a DRY PAPER towel The alcohol may have been the fault It can leave a residue on the surface - The pad will take this of
