Re: polymer plate drying time

I would think that continued use of a hairdryer would be OK. I have the film drying cabinet sitting around and so I can put the plate in it and while it's drying, go off and do other things. I can't see why drying solely with a hairdryer would be a problem. A heatgun on the other hand gets pretty hot. It does seem that in my case, slow and low heat works.

Keith -- didn't you say using a hairdryer for 5-10 minutes would suffice? Or what about a professional heat gun like what's used for doing shrinkwrapping and other crafty things?

I looked into a forced air print drier, which would be more convenient, but it will be a while before I could justify buying one. $$$!
