16. WARNING

WE ARE REQUIRED TO DRAW YOUR ATTENTION TO THE FOLLOWING MATERIALS:-
CADMIUM - CADMIUM COMPOUNDS ARE EXTREMELY POISONOUS SO CARE
NEEDS TO BE TAKE IN THE HANDLING AND USE OF CADMIUM PLATED
COMPONENTS. CONTAMINATION FROM NORMAL HANDLING IS LIKELY TO BE
SLIGHT BUT NORMAL HYGIENE PRECAUTIONS SHOULD BE STRICTLY OBSERVED.
CADMIUM PLATED PARTS SHOULD NEVER BE ALLOWED TO COME INTO CONTACT
WITH FOODSTUFFS OR BE USED IN CONTAINERS FOR HOLDING FOOD.
PRECAUTIONS MUST BE TAKEN TO AVOID INHALING CADMIUM FUMES IF IT IS
NECESSARY TO HEAT CADMIUM PLATED COMPONENTS, E.G. FOR SOLDERING,
WELDING OR CUTTING.
IN MANY APPLICATIONS ZINC IS A SAFER ALTERNATIVE TO CADMIUM.
ZINC - ZINC SHOULD NOT BE USED WHERE IT MAY COME INTO CONTACT WITH
FOOD CONTAINING ANY ACID WHICH COULD PRODUCE SOLUBLE ZINC
COMPOUNDS. PRECAUTIONS MUST BE TAKEN TO AVOID INHALING THE
EXTREMELY UNPLEASANT AND POSSIBLE DANGEROUS WHITE FUMES IF IT IS
NECESSARY TO HEAT ZINC PLATED COMPONENTS, E.G. FOR SOLDERING,
WELDING OR CUTTING.
CHROMATE PASSIVIATION TREATMENTS - CARE SHOULD BE TAKEN IN HANDLING
COMPONENTS THAT HAVE BEEN ZINC OR CADMIUM PLATED AND CHROMATE
PASSIVATED; THERE IS A RISK OF SKIN IRRITATION AND DERMATITIS FROM
HANDLING SUCH COMPONENTS FOR LONG PERIODS WITHOUT THE USE OF GLOVES.

17. SPECIFICATIONS

17.1 The figures for ultimate strengths shown in our literature have determined by tensile
tests on standard assemblies, i.e. fastener and catchplate, and do not include any safety
factors. The loading figures for handles are for loads applied normally and do not allow for
side loading which will tend to straighten out the wire component, except handle 98-651
which incorporates a joining piece to resist deformation.

17.2 Overstrain can be caused by the load applied to close a toggle action fastener, where
no resilience is present. There is a considerable mechanical advantage obtained by the
overcentre action, concomitant with the leverage ratio.

17.3 Where applications to be clamped have no resilience such as rubber seals or flexible
materials, a fastener with one of the forms of spring extension may give a more satisfactory
result. Load extension characteristics are available on request. Ultimate loads given for
spring loaded fasteners are actual failure loads which are outside the resilient range.

17.4 To prevent inadvertent release, certain fasteners are offered with a safety catch; or
have provision for a security pin, as an alternative to a security seal.

17.5 Fixing centres where given in the catalogue are to commercial tolerances for average
applications and Customers are advised to determine dimensions for specific applications
from a sample.

17.6 The corrosion resistance of Stainless Steel fasteners are offered is dependent upon
the grade of material and some may oxidise more rapidly under certain conditions. Details
of grades used are available on request.

17.7 Zinc plate, with full iridescent passivation, may be substituted for Cadmium plate, with
full iridescent passivation, unless otherwise agreed.

18. APPLICABLE LAW AND JURISDICTION

18.1 The formation, construction and performance of this contract shall be governed in
