It is generally recognized that even after employing all the science known to us, and capable men with years of training, there still remain hazards in the electroplating and metal finishing fields. As a consequence, in order to avoid misunderstandings, we are setting forth below conditions under which your material will be accepted by us for processing.

  1. Whenever we are given material with detailed instructions as to treatment, our responsibility shall end with the carrying out of those instructions. Type of materials, tolerances and specifications for processing shall be declared in writing to our processing.
  2. Our liability for any cause is limited to the cost of direct labor and material of the products directly damaged by our processing or three times our processing charges on such material, whichever is the lesser. Charges for our services are based on this Policy limiting our liability.

  4. Parts, materials, etc., as processed by us shall be presumed to be accepted as satisfactory by you if we are not notified of damages, shortages, or other discrepancies within ten working days of your receipt of the same.

Rejected parts must be returned to us for rework. Further processing of assembly of unsatisfactory parts, materials, etc., by you or any other party shall constitute a waiver of any liabilty on our part.

  1. Where operations or processes performed by us are in the nature of "salvaging" parts or materials, the work is accepted on a "best effort" basis and no liability shall attach to us unless previously agreed upon in writing prior to processing the job.
