You must not handle or use the Product until the Material Safety Data Sheet(s) and any applicable Progressive Epoxy Polymers, Inc. Technical Data Sheet(s) has been read and fully understood by you. Statements made by you that differ from information provided or inferred on the Material Safety Data Sheet(s) and/or Technical Data Sheet(s) sheets without referencing those documents shall constitute proof that USER did not read / follow / understand those documents and thus has no claim against Progressive Epoxy Polymers, Inc..

All chemicals may present unknown health hazards and thus must be used with caution and by trained personnel, which is your sole responsibility. Any technical data or advice furnished by Progressive Epoxy Polymers, Inc. shall NOT constitute a warranty or condition, statutory or otherwise, which is expressly disclaimed. All such information is being given and accepted at your sole risk and subject to your own testing. Epoxies will naturally yellow, lose their gloss and chalk slightly when exposed to sunlight (UV rays) and thus the absence of such characteristic is not warranted.

Progressive Epoxy Polymers, Inc. warrants, subject to Progressive Epoxy Polymers, Inc.'s receipt of full proper payment, that the Product shall meet Progressive Epoxy Polymers, Inc.'s standard specifications in effect at the time the Product is delivered. However, you assume sole responsibility for the proper selection, surface preparation for, application, maintenance and storage of the Product purchased from Progressive Epoxy Polymers, Inc. [FOR EXAMPLE: Spraying on of the Product involves many variables over which Progressive Epoxy Polymers, Inc. has no control and may require special equipment and applicator expertise which Buyer must supply]. Further, your sole responsibility extends to problems involving air bubbles in the Product, poor adhesion or incomplete hardening of the Product as well as mixing and application issues. Moreover, it is your responsibility to comply with all applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations. The addition of solvents, thinners, thickeners, fillers or any other additive(s) to the Product voids the warranty. You assume all responsibility for any problems resulting from application over existing coatings, grouts, liners and patching materials.

Therefore, Progressive Epoxy Polymers, Inc.'s obligations with respect to the Product does not, without limitation, apply to: (1) the use of equipment, supplies or other items not designed for the use with the Product, (2) determining the suitability of the Product for its intended use, (3) failure to properly prepare the surface before applying the Product, (4) applicator error in mixing and applying the Product, (5) spraying of the Product, (6) improper handling, storage, and shipping of the Product, (7) adhesion to underwater metallic surfaces, (8) non-conformance with Progressive Epoxy Polymers, Inc.'s recommendations and directions, (9) non-compliance of Product or application with Air Quality and/or Volatile Organic Compound ("VOC") laws and regulations in your particular area.

In the event you claim the Product to be defective or incomplete, you must notify Progressive Epoxy Polymers, Inc. in writing within 30 days of placing the order or 21 days after receipt or delivery of the Product. Progressive Epoxy Polymers, Inc. shall then have a reasonable opportunity to investigate the claim.

PROGRESSIVE EPOXY POLYMERS, INC. MAKES NO EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES WHETHER OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR ANY PARTICULAR PURPOSES OR OTHERWISE (EXCEPT AS TO TITLE) OTHER THAN THOSE EXPRESSLY SET FORTH ABOVE. IN NO EVENT SHALL SELLER OR ITS AGENTS OR SUBCONTRACTORS BE LIABLE FOR DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING LOSS OF PROFITS), HOWEVER BASED.

The Product is shipped FOB from Progressive Epoxy Polymers, Inc. shipping point. The risk of loss of the Product passes to you at the time the Product leaves Progressive Epoxy Polymers, Inc. or manufacturer's facility via carrier or otherwise.

All claims for damage or shortages should be made by you upon receipt of Product and filed with the carrier handing the shipment. Progressive Epoxy Polymers, Inc. will deliver Products at agreed times insofar as it is reasonably able to do so, but Seller shall not be liable for failure to deliver on time when the failure is beyond sellers reasonable control.

When you receive Product, it is your obligation to first open and only test one kit on the intended application/surface rather than Buyer trying to open, apply or use more than one product unit. Your failure to carry out this single open unit obligation will significantly reduce your chances of Progressive Epoxy Polymers, Inc.'s acceptance of any returns.

In the event you shall submit purchase orders or similar documentation the written terms of which are at variance or conflict with the terms and conditions of sale contained herein, your terms shall have no effect to the extent that they may conflict and Progressive Epoxy Polymers, Inc. terms and conditions herein shall prevail.

Your use of any of these suggestions/procedures is at your sole cost and risk. In no event shall Progressive Epoxy Polymers, Inc. be liable to you for CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL damages. You must make an independent determination whether to follow any or all of the above items based upon the numerous application variables at hand.


b) UNDERWATER APPLICATION DISCLAIMER. Because of the Site Specific, Know or Unknown Causes of Underwater Bonding Problems, No Warranty Can Be Offered or Product Returned Based upon Underwater Bonding Problems at your Location. To Avoid Costly Problems Always Test Any Underwater Epoxy for Compatibility and Adhesion Prior to Ordering Project Sized Volumes.


c) TEMPERATURE AND CHEMICAL RESISTANCE DISCLAIMER. The temperature ranges and/or chemical resistance or pot life information outlined above is based upon information provided by the raw material vendor or product formulator, or private tests. Chemical resistance can vary depending upon, but not limited to, such factors a It is provided AS-IS without any warranty and in no way expand the rights under which you have, or will purchase, this Product or related Products. Chemical resistance can vary depending upon, but not limited to, such factors as evaporation, temperature, humidity/moisture, surface preparation, interaction with other chemicals, oxygen levels, and evaporation. Temperature effects on coatings can vary based upon solar heating/coating color, ventilation, duration of frequency of heating cycle, immersion or moisture levels and fluid flow. Pot life is affected by temperature, volume of epoxy mixed and shape of the container. Your use of these epoxies under these conditions is at your sole cost and risk. In no event shall Progressive Epoxy Polymers, Inc. be liable to you for temperature or chemically caused coating failure or CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL damages. You must make an independent determination confirming the coating's resistance to the chemicals and temperatures present in your unique situation.

APPLICATION TEMPERATURES - When applying epoxies in temperatures (or on surfaces) warmer than 80 degree F, or cooler than 50 degrees F, the properties of epoxies, for example (but not limited to), viscosity, set/gel time, smoothness can be affected in unexpected ways. In no event shall Progressive Epoxy Polymers, Inc. be liable to you for Product/coating issues or problems when Product was applied to surfaces, or in conditions outside of the 50- 80 degree F window or for any related CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL damages.



d) AIR QUALITIY/VOLATILE ORGANIC COMPOUND ("VOC") DISCLAIMER. Although Progressive Epoxy Polymers, Inc. has made efforts to ensure compliance with existing VOC regulations, we cannot warrant those efforts for accuracy for use in environmental compliance matters. You must check with your local, state, and Federal regulatory agencies if you have any questions regarding the ability to purchase and/or use the Product, including without limitation, matters related to compliance with VOC laws/regulations. Each local area is subject to varying governmental restrictions and you are solely responsible for determining whether the Product you purchase may be used in your local area. Proper Product selection is your sole responsibility, especially with respect to VOC laws and regulations in your particular area.



e) BOAT HULL (BARRIER) DISCLAIMER. In addition to the other disclaimers listed at www.epoxyproducts.com/legal.html, there is a special disclaimer for purchase, preparation, application and use of Products from Progressive Epoxy Polymers, Inc. used on boat hulls and related structures.

SURFACE PREPARATION/CONTAMINATION: Hull surfaces can be contaminated by such things as previous application of release agents, waxes, polishes and oils. Dust, dirt, water and oils can be a common airborne contaminants in boat work sites. Extensive sanding and blasting of hulls can ground sanding dust and other materials into the hull surface such that a simple washing or wipe down will not remove them. All these factors can have an adverse affect on coating adhesion.

EPOXIES: By their nature, epoxies are hard and rigid. While some hulls are also very stiff and rigid others including (but not limited to) modern, light thin hulls, tend to flex, distort and bend. In addition to structural causes (hull thickness and weight) hull flexing can be caused by (but not limited to): rough weather/seas; mast/rigging tension; boat trailers and cradles; hoist and travel lift slings and harnesses; collisions; groundings and previous hull repairs. Even long term vibrations can have an affect. When a hull flexes, either rapidly or slowly, hard coatings may respond by cracking, delaminating or disbonding.

URETHANES: One and two part urethanes/polyurethanes require outstanding surface preparation (and usually a suitable primer) for adequate adhesion.

METAL HULLS: Adhesion and coating failures on metal hulls (and even fiberglass/resin hulls) can sometimes be linked to ‘soluble salt contamination' (see www.epoxyproducts.com/salt.html). Aluminum hulls often flex a great deal and because exposed aluminum quickly forms an oxide layer, they can be difficult to coat and achieve adequate adhesion.

CEMENT HULLS: Moisture from both sides of the hull and from inside the hull can affect coating adhesion. So can a weak, poorly consolidated surface, as well as the ‘soluble salts' referenced above.

WOOD HULLS: Wood is unique because it expands or contracts based upon moisture. Other materials, including coatings and epoxies expand or contract based upon temperature. Thus, wood and the coatings upon it move differently from each other.

Because of the above issues the decision to apply, what to apply, and how to apply any sort of coating to a boat hull is the sole responsibility of the Customer. Any suggestions; recommendations or procedures for surface preparation, selection and application of Products is given AS-IS without any warranty and is not binding to Progressive Epoxy Polymers, Inc. In no event shall Progressive Epoxy Polymers, Inc. be liable to you for Product costs, shipping costs, preparation/application/removal costs, or CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL damages.



f) POTLIFE DISCLAIMER. Progressive Epoxy Polymers, Inc. may in text or verbally give some indication of possible potlife or working time associated with different epoxies. Potife is greatly effected by: temperature of the epoxy, air temperature, surface temperature, amount of epoxy in the container during mixing and during application, fillers, thickeners, solvents or other materials added to the epoxy, and the shape of the container. Generally, one gallon of mixed epoxy will have a potlife of just several minutes while the same epoxy may have a potlife of much longer if only one quart of epoxy is mixed. Therefore, Customer must determine actual potlife for his unique situation and cannot hold Progressive Epoxy Polymers, Inc. responsible for any consequences, damages or delays associated with potlife values presented by Progressive Epoxy Polymers, Inc. to the Customer.



g) WEATHER - ENVIRONMENT DISCLAIMER. Changes in the environment during application and during early cure (several days) can adversely affect our epoxies and coatings. Rain, dew, moisture, condensation, humidity swings, engine exhaust/gases etc. may damage the coatings during this time window. Changes in temperature can cause porous substrates (including but not limited to concrete and wood) to expel air bubbles or other materials into the epoxy during this time window.

These weather and environmental factors are outside of the control of Progressive Epoxy Polymers, Inc. It is your responsibility to apply coatings (and have them cure) within suitable environmental and workplace conditions. Progressive Epoxy Polymers, Inc. is not responsible for coating failures or problems related to the weather or environment at the job site. Comments, text and suggestions offered by Progressive Epoxy Polymers, Inc. regarding weather and environmental conditions are general condition suggestions only and not binding terms which Progressive Epoxy Polymers, Inc. can be held responsible for.

In some cases partial environmental / weather related information may be listed on the product Material Safety Data Sheet(s) and Technical Data Sheet(s). Statements made by you that differ from information MSDS or data sheet. See the PRODUCT WARRANTY section of this document regarding your required reading and understanding of these documents prior to Product use.


h) WHITE SPOTTING/STAINING DISCLAIMER. When epoxies are applied outdoors moisture from rain, dew, condensation (often from temperature changes), spills, birds overhead, can produce white spots or stain during the first day after/during application. The moisture can come from above or below (up from the ground). Progressive Epoxy Polymers, Inc. and its products are not the cause for any such spotting and you cannot hold Progressive Epoxy Polymers, Inc. in any way responsible or demand any sort of refund, discount, adjustment to their purchase because of shotting/staining.


i) BELOW GRADE ADHESION DISCLAIMER. Adhesion of epoxies to surfaces below grade (basements, cellars, pits, sumps and similar) can be compromised by groundwater moisture issues. Water tables can rise and fall based upon rainfall, seasonal shifts (spring snow melt etc), surface grading and plants etc. This is in additon to possible adhesion issues caused by poor surface preparation, a weak or damaged substrate, oils, sealers or coatings already applied to the substrate. Progressive Epoxy Polymers, Inc. and its products are not the cause for any below grade adhesion issues and you cannot hold Progressive Epoxy Polymers, Inc. in any way responsible or demand any sort of refund, discount, adjustment to their purchase because of below grade adhesion issues.

VII - HEALTH AND SAFETY WARNINGS

You must read and follow the Product Data Dheet and MSDS recomendations/requirements before using any Product.

Solvent based coatings may be flammable. Solvent based Products can cause skin irritation and eye irritation, burning, tearing, redness. Use impermeable aprons, gloves and protective clothing whenever possible to prevent skin contact. Wear chemical splash goggles. Excessive exposure to solvent vapors can cause headache, dizziness, uncoordination, nausea and loss of consciousness. Massive overexposure may cause unconsciousness or even death. Reports have associated repeated and prolonged occupational exposure to solvents with permanent brain and nervous system damage.

Epoxies can cause skin irritation and are a possible skin sensitizer that can result in skin sensitization and dermatitis, chemical burns, redness and swelling. Avoid eye contact which can result in burning, tearing, redness, swelling, possible chemical burns. Use impermeable aprons, gloves and protective clothing whenever possible to prevent skin contact. Wear chemical splash goggles.

When spraying any coating, use a cartridge respirator or gas mask suitable to keep airborne mists and vapor concentration below the time weighted limit values. When brushing or rolling in poorly ventilated and confined spaces, use a fresh air supplying respirator or a self-contained breathing apparatus.

Failure to follow any of these health and safety recommendations shall be considered a misuse of the Product purchased by you (or on your behalf).

"At least 70% of premature coatings failures are traced back to 'surface preparation' whether referring to wood, concrete, or metal. In a commercial recoating project, the costs (and profit) associated with surface preparation are about 70% of the job. How extensive the surface preparation is will depend on the performance expectation of the owner... Know the A, B, C's of surface preparation - visible contaminants, invisible contaminants, and profile."
