[Histonet] Fat issues

Hello All,
I have some vascular graft tissues that we have paraffin embedded and some  
of the tissues have extra-vascular fat.  The practice sample I  sectioned this 
morning seems to section well (other than the suture issues),  however the fat 
"blows up" as soon as I place the sections into the flotation  bath.  Is 
there some way to minimize this?  I will try cooling down  the water bath 
temperature, as it may have been a bit warm.
Any suggestions are welcome.
