Small Batch Policy


OVERVIEW:

Carboline understands that our customers will occasionally have the need to purchase small quantities. Carboline has the unique ability to manufacture small batches upon customer request and this is a service we want to maintain. This policy outlines the details of providing this service.

 

POLICY SUMMARY:

We will manufacture small batches of made-to-order (MTO) products as long as the following conditions are met:

 

    • 1. Small batches are defined as a minimum of 5 gallons and a maximum of 50 gallons and are covered under this policy.

       

      2. The size of the batch is defined by the number of liquid gallons of the part A component.

       

    • 3. The customer will be charged a $300 small batch fee and is required to purchase the entire batch with a yield of +/- 10%.


      Example 1: The customer orders 36 kit gallons of Carboguard 890 (2 component, 1:1 fill ratio) in 2 gallon kits in an MTO color. The customer can either 1) Increase order to 100 kit gallons or 2) Proceed with ordering 36 kit gallons. The customer will be charged a $300 small batch fee and accept batch yield +/-10% on the 18 gallons of part A that will be manufactured.
      Example 2: The customer orders 36 kit gallons of Carbothane 134HG (2 component, 4:1 fill ratio.) in 1 gallon kits, in an MTO color. The customer can either 1.) Increase order to 63 kit gallons, or 2.) Proceed with ordering 36 kit gallons. The customer will be charged a $300 small batch fee and accept batch yield +/- 10% on the 29 gallons of part A that will be manufactured.
      Example 3: The customer orders 36 kit gallons of Thermaline 4700 (1 component) in 1 gallon kits, in an MTO color. The customer can either 1.) Increase order to >50 kit gallons, or 2.) Proceed with ordering 36 kit gallons. The customer will be charged a $300 small batch fee, and accept batch yield of +/- 10% on the 36 gallons of part A that will be manufactured.

      4.) If, Carboline treats the larger kits size as an MTS product, and the smaller kits size as an MTO product, Carboline will re-can the larger size into a smaller size for a $5 charge per/smaller unit ordered, and will waive the small batch fee of $300.
