I am having a difficult time trying to find the Mastic glue in 250gr containers at the moment and wondering if anyone knows if they have been discontinued or lacking cause of covid? I thought I had found some cans and ordered two but when it showed up at my door it was those packages with packets of four in each envelope. I opened one up to see what they were all about and one of the packets was punctured and the glue was already curing and upon opening the other two envelopes each had punctures. I have emailed the shop with pictures and hoping that maybe they will replace it. I am still hopeful that I would be able to purchase the cans as these packages are very delicate to punctures. Just seems like a waste of glue and materials to me.

Thanks guys, I was told by https://www.rossibikes.com/ that they will be getting the 250gr from another manufacturer so if your looking for larger containers they ship out of Lachine, Quebec. They were really good with customer service and reimbursed me for the items. Apparantly I am not the first to have issue with these delicate envelopes.
