Wax for Dulcote


Recommended Posts

You get special cleaners for satin and flat finishes. I dont know how they would work on models but most detailing product manufacturers will probably have them. Maybe start on a bmw or hot rodclub site as they use more  satin finish so their owners might be able to help

I’m a major user of Testors Dullcote and have never done anything more than dusted it off. In fact when I have decided to do final finishes that are primer, I use Dullcote to seal that in since bare primer will scratch and since it’s porous dust can get imbedded in it.

I've done the same thing, and it's a system that works well.

Carl, I use Armor All Cleaner Wax on Dull Cote. It will give it just a touch of shine. Almost gives it a satin look. I would think any automotive wax would work the same.

I didn’t know if fingerprints or oil from handing it would bother the finish...

Try Tamiya TS-79 semigloss clear and TS80 clear flat. They are a much  more durable finish for handling.

Thanks I will check those out..

I've been using Testor Dullcote for decades for flat finishes on model airplanes, and it's very durable, not vulnerable to fingerprints and whatnot.

Thanks Snake, I have a can to try...
