Uncured Resin Clear Coating Not Curing


Hey guys- I tried coating some devices with clear resin to get an optically transparent finish like the camera lens white paper. However I can’t get it to cure completely. I have baked it in the Form Cure for 30 minute increments for at least 120 mins total at 60 degrees C and the resin is still tacky. Is there a difference in the wavelength between the form cure and printer? I also suspect maybe having a thinner coating might be better? Please help me

I was able to harden the resin by leaving it outside in the sun for a few hours. It blows my mind how this would work, but not during several hours in a Form Cure, which I thought was more intense than the sun. Is the LED power in the Form Cure not that strong or something?
