Performance – Experimental or prototype designs cannot be guaranteed to meet end-use suitability.

If Purchaser orders and/or CHR Inc. delivers a Product designated as a “Prototype”, no guarantees, warranties or representations as to fitness for a particular purpose or merchantability are made with respect to such Prototype. Custom Designed heaters may be manufactured with a +/-10% targeted power. Buyer shall have the duty and sole responsibility to test a Prototype prior to acceptance and/or incorporation into end-use applications. Buyer, therefore, shall have the duty and sole responsibility for testing and acceptance of production Products which are based on Prototype designs. Note that PSA backed heaters must be installed within 6 months of purchase and during that time must be stored in a room temperature (68F/20C) with no more than 50% relative humidity.
