Furthermore, the information contained herein or as supplied by our sales representatives is not to be construed as a warranty of representation for which we assume legal responsibility. Users should undertake sufficient verification and testing to determine the suitability for their own particular purpose of any information or products or advice provided by our sales representatives. NO WARRANTY OF FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE IS MADE. Nothing herein is to be taken as permission, inducement, or recommendation to produce any patented invention without a license.

Terms of Sale
Modern Plastics policy will grant an immediate $500.00 temporary credit-line to established companies (provide Federal ID#) immediately to help expedite first-time orders. All necessary credit application paperwork and State tax resale (tax forms must be on file at Modern Plastics before orders ship or we will assess the current tax rate) forms must be completed, signed and returned to Modern Plastics for processing to establish higher credit lines and Net-30 terms.

National companies, Government agencies and large, established businesses that may require higher initial “first-buy” credit limits, can have this arranged for “same day order placement” to help expedite quick turn-around of your order. Under certain circumstances (custom cut-to-size orders, custom fabrication, special order items), cash deposits, money orders, electronic cash transfers, and/or credit card payments may be required in order to expedite your shipment. Modern Plastics can also arrange for C.O.D. shipments.

We accept MasterCard, Visa Card, and American Express. Credit Card Billing Authorization Forms are typically faxed or e-mailed to customers to expedite the shipping process. Special order items, custom order items, custom fabricated items or non-returnable items may require payment in full prior to shipping or 50% deposits prior to shipping.

International Sales
Please send your requests for quotes and orders via e-mail (instead of faxing) to: customerservice@modernplastics.com. Modern Plastics accepts wire transfers directly to our bank account. Please contact Chris Acosta for bank account information and ABA#. Include your Modern Plastics salesperson’s contact name and your PO# number in any correspondence for payment.

Purchases that exceed $5,000 US Dollars, must provide a Bank Letter of Credit.

Prices quoted for freight do not include duties and taxes. Modern Plastics utilizes “plastic skids” (no wood skids are used) conforming to International Shipping Standards. Any international sale that requires materials to be packaged on a skid platform will be assessed the appropriate fee for the cost of the plastic skid(s).

Please include the name and contact information of the freight company you would like us to ship your order, and if billing is directly to your company, we will need your billing account number to charge the freight. Otherwise, shipping costs will need to be wired to Modern Plastics in advance. Note: a fee will apply for all “heat-treated” skids.

All sales, service, shipping, accounting and other personnel that may be involved in export shall be familiar with and review regularly the Modern Plastics Export Management System (EMS) to ensure compliance with government regulations. Particular attention should be taken when releasing technical information to foreign nationals, whether abroad or in the United States, in electronic transmission of data/software and when hand carrying exports.

Under no circumstances shall Modern Plastics personnel sell or ship any product contrary to United States export laws or shall these laws be compromised for personal gain. Neither sales nor shipments are to be made to any individual or firm appearing in the Denied Parties Lists or to any firms owned by or associated with the individuals of firms therein listed. Also, no orders or shipments are to be made to any country subject to economic or trade sanctions imposed by the U.S. unless otherwise authorized by U.S. law. Failure to comply with these regulations may result in the imposition of criminal and/or civil fines and penalties, including incarceration for individuals and suspension of export privileges for Modern Plastics.

As a result, we need to be vigilant in screening our customers and transactions. It is, therefore, more important than ever that the “Know Your Customer” guidelines are understood and implemented in order that Modern Plastics can meet the required “know” standard.

In particular, no transaction can be made when dealing with individuals, companies and countries involved with the proliferation of nuclear missile and chemical/biological related processes and/or weapons without a license from the Department of Commerce.

Non-compliance or possible non-compliance with any of the export laws and regulations that becomes known to any Modern Plastics employee shall be immediately reported to the President of Modern Plastics.

Conditions of Sales
All products are warranted by the manufacturer only. MODERN PLASTICS DOES NOT WARRANT SPECIFICATIONS, TOLERANCES, SUITABILITY, MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS OR ANY OTHER ASPECT OF ANY PRODUCT.

It should be noted that “labor” or other incidental costs, are never warranted by Modern Plastics or its manufacturers, in the event of product failure. IN NO CASE SHALL MODERN PLASTICS BE LIABLE FOR ANY INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOST PROFITS, EVENT IF IT HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY THEREOF.

Modern Plastics certifies that the material supplied meets the minimum specifications listed below.

Complete and detailed spec sheets for all materials are available to customers for a nominal fee.

Quality Control

All incoming and outgoing materials are bar-coded to verify that the materials you order are exactly what you receive. Material traceability to the original manufacturer can be provided on most shipments.

Ordering Criteria
Unless it is Modern Plastics error, all cut-to-size orders, special order items and fabrication orders are final sale.

All products are produced to standard commercial specifications and tolerances. The manufacturer warrants any defects or variances in specification. Our liabilities are limited to the cost of the defective material only (no labor or machining costs). Our standard cutting tolerance is +/-.062 (1/16″ inch).

Medical Plastics Materials
Please note that, unless specified through a written and signed document between seller and buyer, no material sold as “medical” or any other such plastic materials shall be used for permanent implant(s). A written signed “contract” of terms and conditions for the sales of “VESTAKEEP®” product must be returned to Modern Plastics before the product can ship. Modern Plastics does not assume any liability whatsoever for those materials sold in which the buyer intends to use our plastic products as a permanent implantable materials – despite any private testing, advice, recommendations or information supplied from any source.

Claims for concealed damage on shipments must be filed with the carrier. It is advised that you retain all packing materials, cartons, and/or pictures of the damaged shipment for your claim. All shipments are shipped FOB SHELTON, CT (ORIGIN) – in no way is Modern Plastics responsible for lost or damaged shipments.

Pallet Charge Transportation Policy 
Shipping plastics is not like shipping other standard UPS type products. For one, many plastics are indeed fragile items that require special packaging, boxing and handling to insure that they arrive in pristine, unscratched condition at your door. There are not only additional packaging materials and special boxing that adds cost, but also the labor to prepare the packages for shipping can get quite lengthy. An example of this is when wooden crates must be assembled for encasing large sheets of plastic that would be easily damaged by even the most careful common carrier trucking company. Also, Federal Trucking Regulations, in terms of how plastics are “classified”, can also determine the rate of shipping your order. Some plastics might be very light in weight, yet consume lots of “air-space”, thus a higher corresponding shipping bill. As you can imagine, it is less costly to ship an item via UPS than with a trucking company, and that is why we offer many of our items cut into “UPS’able” sizes. UPS won’t take a 10′ foot long rod, yet, but we’ll offer you 2 pieces of rod, 5′ foot long instead. You’re still getting the desired footage, but the item can be easily shipped in the 5′ foot length via UPS. Another cost factor comes into play with International Shipments. Many countries now prohibit the use of wooden pallets coming into their country for fear that the wood could be harboring insects, disease, etc. Plastic pallets are now be required by most countries and these plastic pallets (since they are not commonly used right now) have a cost structure that is currently higher then wood pallets. Those costs must be passed on to the buyer when shipping goods overseas. In time though, the cost of plastic pallets should equal that of wood as it becomes more commonplace. Many of our rods are sold in 6′ or 8′ lengths. Again, these items are easily shipped through UPS service.

It’s also when our skill, knowledge and experience of 70 years of shipping plastics materials all over the world comes into play toward getting you the fastest and least expensive shipping means possible. Lastly, there are the UPS and trucking charges themselves that with the cost of fuel, transportation fees and fuel surcharges, seems to escalate more and more.We believe the main message in all of this is for you, our customer, to know that Modern Plastics is exceptionally knowledgeable when it comes to shipping our products, and we strive daily to insure that you are getting the fairest, most economical means of receiving your product. It is not our intention to gouge or profit from our shipping charges to our customers. Since the inception of our website and e-commerce activity, we have never had a shipment returned for damage (anywhere in the world!) while in transit. That more than anything demonstrates the care we take to insure safe arrival of your plastic goods. Small Order Charge All orders shipped via UPS, Federal Express, Common carrier and other shipment companies are accessed a $10.00/per handling/boxing fee and/or a $25.00 per “palletized shipment” charge.  Modern Plastics reserves the right to change or modify any of the above fees without prior notice. A “Fuel Surcharge” fee may be in effect as necessary.

Handling/Boxing/Pallet Charges
All orders are shipped F.O.B. shipping point by the least expensive surface method available, unless premium/fast shipping methods are requested.

In some cases, materials must be crated to insure safe arrival. Crating charges will be e-mailed to you along with the shipping charges on an individual basis.

Materials that cannot ship via small package carriers will ship via common carrier.

All orders shipped via UPS, Federal Express, etc. are accessed a $10.00/per handling/boxing fee and/or a $25.00 per “palletized shipment” charge (in addition to the actual freight charges by the carriers).

Handling/Boxing/Pallet Charges/Company Truck Delivery
Any order less than $100.00 will be assessed a $25.00 Small Order Charge to the total of the order.

Additional Information on Shipping and Shipping Costs
All orders are shipped F.O.B. SHELTON, CT (ORIGIN) by the least expensive surface method available, unless premium/fast shipping methods are requested. Local deliveries are shipped via our company owned trucks and orders are assessed a delivery charge. In no way is Modern Plastics responsible for lost or damaged shipments.

No returns will be accepted without prior authorization in the form of an “RMA” number obtained by calling our sales office. Any claims for shortage or breakage for any reason, must be made within 30 days from date of shipment. All returns are subject to a 30% restocking charge, plus reconditioning and repacking costs if necessary.
