This is the email message from the neoprene company:
Production ran your sample yesterday and it is currently curing. The purple
lycra sample from you only measured 54". The composite does not have much
material hanging over. Overall, the material looks good despite that the
purple lycra came all bunched up in a box. We will check the bond later
today and determine if it is ready to ship. The bond looked good already
right after it was fiberized but it must cure before shipping. I will
contact you later with the result of the inspection.
