Insuring the product works for any given application is ultimately the responsibility of the purchaser. If buyer does not request or declines samples for evaluation, request to return any order, unless defective, will be respectfully declined. The selection of diameter, thickness and length are key considerations. Our sales staff will be happy to assist you with your requirements.
Samples are processed daily. If the request is for an item available from our stockroom, it will be sent out, typically, by the next working day. If a custom size is required for sampling purposes it will either be produced in our sample lab (charges may apply), as the schedule allows, or requested from our other facilities. Delivery of samples using either of these latter options is dependent on scheduling and cannot be predetermined.
