I don't have any technical explanation but the way I see it is the more high solids products of today don't flash as fast so they are just laying there wet and soaking in. They also use things like acetone and oxhall (spelling?) as a solvent because they are heavy and don't go up into our atmosphere, thus "low VOC" (or NO VOC actually) and they just sit there in the film taking a long time to leave.

That's how my brain sees it anyway.
