Thanks for the details Eric. I was just hoping to find additional reference (looked on Dr. Ware's site, but did not really find anything). Agree the that the LiCl does pull A LOT of water in (I'm near you south of Ft. Worth) and have seen the LiCl pull the moisture in...bet you have too. Went ahead with the mix late yesterday evening using the 2.3+1.7 and will let you know how it works out. Sounds like we may coat the same way, because I do not humidify that long either (depends on the humidity though - have not attempted to coat recently when the RH was around 10).
Thanks again for the input...if I can find any additional info will post it here.
