Poly vs alcohol - question

John Crissman
>In reading the threads, one said poly is fine soaking overnight, while another said poly will dissolve with a two day soak.

It is my understanding that poly is actually activated by a small level of moisture content in the wood, hence the magazines recommend that you wet MDF prior to a poly glue-up.

Could it be that the two-day soak actually removes the amount of moisture necessary to sustain poly adherence?

Thanks,
John
