This Express Limited Warranty shall not be modified, enlarged, expanded upon or affected in any way by verbal commentary or non-written installation instructions or other advice by any person or entity, regardless of the existence of a relationship of any type or sort between such person or entity and Seller; site specific and/or installation conditions are not the responsibility of Seller or its representatives to address or provide advice and no verbal advice by Seller or its representative concerning such matters shall constitute a warranty by Seller or alter the terms and conditions of the Express Limited Warranty as set out in this Express Limited Warranty Information.

Warranty Limitations:

The Aerocel® Products are manufactured and warranted for their thermal insulation performance hereunder solely for use under normal conditions. Abnormal Conditions include exposure to certain chemical fumes, petroleum-based substances, other substances and compounds not compatible with EPDM rubber products, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION, petroleum oil and petroleum solvents such as Benzene, Gasoline, Kerosene, Octane, Toluene and Butyl Acetate and the fumes of the same. Damage to the Aerocel® Products which may occur from fire, accident or any form of abuse, or exposure to Abnormal Conditions is not covered by this warranty. While exposure to Ultraviolet light due to outdoor use is not considered Abnormal Conditions for purposes of this Express Limited Warranty, cosmetic damage caused by outdoor use without additional weather protective coatings or coverings is not covered by this Express Limited Warranty. Cosmetic damage due to uncovered or uncoated product exposed to Ultraviolet light for purposes of this warranty is considered any damage which does not affect the thermal insulative properties of Aerocel® Products. If exposed or installed subject to Abnormal Conditions, the product should be removed immediately and replaced once the conditions of installation are normal or with products more suitable to general ambient conditions of the installation or installation site. The growth of mold is not covered by this warranty nor is damage arising from the growth of mold the responsibility of Seller. All Aerocel® Products should be maintained to avoid excessive dirt or dust buildup or the presence of excessive moisture that would provide a medium for microbial growth on the Aerocel® Products.

 

Warranty Conditions:

The above described Aerocel® Products each must be installed in accordance with Seller’s written installation instructions for that product in effect at the time of installation and in accordance with best industry practice. Prior to installation, the insulation product must be kept clean and dry and not subject to Abnormal Conditions. Installation of the Aerocel® Products shall be carried out where the temperature is between 32°F and 120°F to allow the Aeroseal adhesive to properly tack and bond. The Express Limited Warranty is void if improper installation practices or unapproved installation products are used. This Express Limited Warranty does not extend to any component of the insulation system other than the specific Aerocel® Products identified herein above, such as, but not limited to, the adhesive other than Aeroseal®, pinning devices, tapes other than Aerotape® or Protape® or any other accessory used in the installation of the Aerocel® Products.

 

Exclusive Remedy for Valid Warranty Claim:

Subject to confirmation by Seller of the failure of any one or more of the Aerocel® Products to which the above Express Limited Warranty is to be applied, Seller will deliver, at Seller’s expense, F.O.B. to the place of installation, new product, of the same or similar type and grade, in an amount equal to that which is determined to be defective. The foregoing is the EXCLUSIVE remedy against Seller upon a valid warranty claim hereunder.
