[Histonet] Sakura glas coverslipper and mounting media types

For those with the Sakura Glas coverslippers, what type of mounting media 
are you using in these?  Sakura recommends only their brand of course, but 
I want something that dries faster.  We do not have excess mounting media 
on the outside of our slides, but after being in the oven for three days 
we had several slides sticking.  It looked like the mounting media slipped 
down the slide to pool at the bottom and stick.  I am thinking their media 
is too viscous.  If I turn the amount down on the machine any further we 
end up with not enough media on the slides and get large air pockets after 
just a few days of storage.  BTW the oven is at 40 degrees and isn't 
boiling hot to dry the slides.
