    Powdercoat on a new frame

    Hi folks. I just took delivery on a new custom frame and have noticed two spots where the powdercoat is tacky to the touch: on the front of the head tube and the underside of the bottom bracket. I've had timeframe hanging in the house for more than 24 hours in hopes that the tacky spots would dry, but so far no luck.

    Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get it to dry so that I can proceed with the build? Is it as simple as taking a hair dryer to it?

    It's not powder coat. Perhaps some errant Frame Saver?

    That actually makes alot of sense and makes me feel much better about it. It did receive a hit of Framesaver before shipping. So I guess I'm okay to rinse with a damp rag to remove?
    Enjoy the ride!
