    Wax wins. I've even used unscented/uncoloured Minwax flooring wax with excellent results.

    There's an Airtec product for high-temperature cures, Safelease 30, that works even better. But it's not really worth the extra cost unless you're going to be curing at eighty Celsius or higher.

    PVA takes up space, therefore it affects the end product finish
