I use a slide warmer for thin cut sections at approximately 37 degrees C.  
Usually wet cutting the block with a lower % alcohol then place the tissue 
on  a warm treated slide with 70% alcohol. work out the wrinkles gently with 
forceps, then I place plastic on the section roll with a small roller to 
flatten and remove to a table.  Some plastics will wrinkle as they set on 
the slide warmer.  changing the % alcohol on the block face or on the slide 
may also prove effective.

Hope this helps.
