                                                        These Terms and Conditions govern the sale, delivery, installation and use of Arcoflex components.

         Each order submitted to Arcoflex incorporates these Terms and Conditions and forms an agreement (“contract”) between the person named as the buyer       on the order and Arcoflex Australia Pty Ltd (ABN 22 623 767 500) (“Arcoflex”).  The contract becomes binding in accordance with clause 6.
