So that saves you the long distance shipping cost / customs hassle depending on where you live.
I live in the UK. Can you provide the address of that UK person or suggest a way to discover it? Thanks.

I do not expect the exact recipe / mold / manufacturing details will be in the public domain soon.

Are these new seals now part of a new R24 if ordered?

Asking for a friend. :D

Your friend should probably email Londinium for the current status of the switch over. It's my understanding that all Londinium machines will eventually be sold with the new seals, even the Vectis.

Just saw this on the Londinium forum; "shipping is NZD30 worldwide, unless you are in NZ, when it is NZD10. everyone with this group needs these seals. they are transformational."

If it's a specially developed recipe it will be patented or something; there's no reason to keep secret which elastomer it is.
