Good morning HSQ USERS in the Ebeam Labs,

Pressured by the need to reduce expenses for consumable resist 
engineering materials and motivated to delay ordering the next batch 
until we start up next year, I wish to get your reply to this email 
promptly if you desire to use this material during November and early 
December. We are nearly out of this material in stock... There are 
sufficient supplies of outdated FoX-12 and FoX-25 for spin on oxide 
applications, but my not perform well for EBL/IBL.

Why?  The material has a short shelf life (90 days to 6 months at very 
best in the original source bottle.  If we can't use the next 100 ml up 
before shut down I would rather delay ordering the next batch until 
then. Its about $971.00 per 100 to 125 ml...
