April 1, 2020
ACCEPTANCE: All orders shall be subject to the following terms and conditions.
TELEPHONE ORDERS: Telephone orders are accepted at the risk of the Buyer and must have reference to a Purchase Order Number. The Buyer must confirm telephone orders with written confirmation, which should be marked "CONFIRMATION", or similar to avoid duplication of order.
PRICES: Prices are as shown on the website (https://www.ceramicfasteners.com) at the time the order is placed and are subject to change at any time. All prices are in U.S. dollars. Clerical and typographical errors are subject to correction.
USAGE: Customer understands: (1) shrink factor variations in processing ceramic fasteners and their stack-up tolerance cannot be controlled on the thread pitch. Therefore engaging more than 5 threads on any male fastener is not recommended; (2) Ceramic materials are inherently brittle. Therefore specified torque values (https://www.ceramicfasteners.com/tech-info/stock-fasteners_torque-values.php) must not be exceeded.
CERTIFICATION OF COMPLIANCE: Supplied upon request. Please contact us.
