I can attest to material sloughing off with hot pads -- at least one of the pads I ran last weekend looked like it had been dipped half-way in strong acid, with ~2-3mm of material on one side, and just a scarred, grainy looking ~0.5mm layer on the other half.

EBC Yellows are on order from Jamie. Really looking forward to trying out this new compound!
