    yeah at present pretty much heat and the proper amount. The long thin area is a real problem as it has micro cracks usually In the material. I know of a company that uses chemical release but they are not sharing info as they do tons of super expensive lights . As soon as we figure out a good release I will be more than happy to share as the parts to repair or available
