So the UPS guy left my box of supplies, flanges, sureseals, paste and m9 drops, on the front porchin the freaking snow and ice and rain!  Well we didnt know it was there, obviously.   So it got soaked.  The flanges are dry since they are in that plastic wrapping, and the sureseals seems dry.  I know the paste and m9 will be ok,but do you think the moisture and cold will have affected the flange and the sureseal?

How long was it out there before you found it? If overnight then no guarantees, if a few hours likely OK. Rosemary

i sent you a friend request on fb so i could tell you about what i know

the wafers didnt get wet, cause you know they are in that plastic also. but the sureseals may have. Although i guess if they got wet and dont stick as well thats not such a big deal

let the sureseals dry out completely. I bet they'll be fine too.

I hope you are all right about the cold on the supplies. I leave a bag in the car for emergencies and It is -21 today. Has been colder than that this past week. Maybe I should take it out of the car? I wasting.

Sounds like a question for your supplier. They might be generous and exchange whatever may be damaged for replacements.

well i wore the one wafer for i think 5 days, and i changed because the bag got messed up, and whne i pulled the wafer off i still had a good seal, the only thing that was weird was my skin was white where the wafer was.
