Melting latex seals? Are you BBQ'ing in your drysuit again, Jeff? Haven't seen this problem before. Latex seals can get tacky and nasty after a few years, particularly if they get lot's of sun exposure. That said, I have DC latex seals and they have lasted years, but I don't leave the suit in the sun to dry. That helps prolong the life. Everyone I know who uses dry gloves does so with latex seals.
