This article brings to the forefront what we all know but ignore so often. Overcoating IOZ in the shop especially in the Northeast during winter months is a potential disaster when ignoring the necessary conditions for IOZ cure.

Good article. For lab verification of cure, I prefer gas chromatography (GC)when there is enough sample available - place primer and water in a sealed vial, heat to ensure cure, check the liquid for ethanol.
