3% Loss Allowance:

As a precondition to accepting work in process, all work received at UNIMETAL SURFACE FINISHING will be subject to a 3% Loss Allowance Policy.

Factors such as scale variations, samples needed for inspections, testing, thickness readings, manufacturing oil, visual and performance evaluations, etc. all contribute to count differences. Discrepancies over the 3% loss allowance must be made in writing within 60 days of receipt of order.

 

Product Liability Damage:

Our liability for any cause is limited to the lesser of the cost of either the direct labor and material of the product damage by our processing or:
