The seller will not be liable for any damages resulting from the use of technical assistance or information provided by the seller.

In addition to product prices, each order is subject to shipping and handling fees, which will vary based on shipping speed and destination. Shipping charges will be added to the invoice when shipment freight terms are prepaid ("Freight Prepaid"). If desired, the buyer may request shipment by "Freight Collect", in which case the seller will use the buyer's shipping accounts or procedures.
  2. Hazardous materials may require special packaging for shipment, and a hazardous materials handling fee may be applied as part of the S&H costs. All hazardous materials are clearly marked on our website by their UN number (their hazardous material transportation identification number).
  3. Whenever possible, the seller will ship products by the method specified on the buyer's order, working closely with selected carriers for optimal service. Deviating from the list of selected carriers may result in additional expenses and shipment delays. If necessary, the seller may utilize other carriers to ensure timely and cost-effective delivery.
  4. The seller shall not be liable for any delay in delivery or failure to deliver due to any cause beyond its reasonable control, such as natural disasters, labor disputes, or transportation disruptions. The seller will make all reasonable efforts to inform the buyer of any such delay and provide updated delivery estimates.

7. Taxes and Customs Charges

  1. Depending on the originating location ("FROM") and the destination country or region ("TO"), orders may be subject to sales tax. If applicable, the sales tax will be automatically charged and indicated on the invoice.
  2. Any taxes, fees, or charges imposed by any government authority, including sales taxes, excise taxes, duties, customs fees, inspection/testing fees, or any other taxes or fees of any nature whatsoever, that are collected by the related authority must be paid directly by the buyer to the competent authorities. If the buyer has exemption status on any of these taxes, fees, or charges, they must provide the exemption certificate or other acceptable documentation to the taxing authority imposing the tax, fee, or charge at the time of order submission. In the event that the seller is required to pay any such tax, fee, or charge, the buyer shall reimburse the seller within 30 days from the date of the invoice.
  3. The buyer is responsible for obtaining any necessary permits, licenses, or other documents required for the import, export, or transit of the products ordered. The buyer is also responsible for ensuring that the products ordered comply with all applicable laws and regulations in the destination country or region. The seller is not responsible for any costs or delays incurred due to the buyer's failure to comply with these requirements.
  4. Any customs clearance or import duties levied on goods by the customs authorities of the destination country shall be the sole responsibility of the buyer. The seller shall not be liable for any delay, loss, or damage arising out of or in connection with any such customs clearance or import duties.

8. Warranties

  1. The seller warrants that its products shall conform, in a reasonable manner, to the description of said products, as provided to the buyer by the seller through the seller's website, catalog, analytical data, or other literature of the seller. The buyer assumes all risk and liability resulting from the use of the products delivered hereunder, whether used singly or in combination with other products, as the risks associated with some materials are not known, and still subject to developing research findings.
  2. Due to the unpredictability of product customization, the lead time may be longer than the one initially quoted. Any warranty with respect to the lead time is expressly excluded.

9. Product Specifications

The seller reserves the right to change product specifications without prior notice to the buyer. The buyer assumes all risk and liability resulting from any issues arising from these specification changes and will not hold the seller liable for damages.

  1. Shipments ordered can be returned only after a written authorization from vendor has been granted; returns must be within 30 days of the receipt of the shipment. All the returned items are subject to the restocking charge of 30 % total product price. The buyer must pay all the shipping charges. This policy is not applicable to any items that have been opened or used.
  2. Only items authorized by seller for return will be accepted. Final disposition of returned goods will be made only after receipt and inspection of goods. Collect shipments will not be accepted unless previously authorized. Hazardous materials must be shipped in compliance with all applicable regulations. Material returned requiring disposal may incur additional charges.
  3. In the event of damage or loss in transit, the buyer must notify the seller and the carrier within 5 business days of receipt of goods. The buyer is responsible for retaining all packaging materials and damaged goods until an inspection by the carrier can be made.

  2. Any cancellations must be made before the order is shipped.

  4. The seller shall not be liable for any damages or losses, including consequential or incidental damages, resulting from a cancellation of an order.
  5. Custom orders cannot be cancelled once they have been placed and are non-refundable. Custom orders are defined as any orders that require product modifications or customizations, including but not limited to, special sizes, purities, materials, or treatments. The buyer is responsible for ensuring the accuracy of all specifications and requirements for custom orders, as seller cannot be held liable for any issues arising from incorrect or incomplete information provided by the buyer. Any changes to custom orders must be approved in writing by the seller and may result in additional fees and/or delays in delivery.

12. Patent Infringements

The buyer shall indemnify and hold the seller harmless from and against any and all claims, damages, liabilities, costs and expenses, including reasonable attorneys' fees, arising out of or in connection with any claim, suit or proceeding alleging that the products delivered by the seller infringe any patent or other intellectual property right of any third party.

In the event of such a claim, the seller shall have the right, at its option and expense, to:

  1. procure for the buyer the right to continue using said product,
  2. replace the infringing product with a non-infringing product, or,
