Chicago Steel agrees to run painted coils
across our processing lines on a "Best
Effort Basis." We have procedures in place
that provide for line preparation to be
performed prior to "painted" coil runs.
These procedures include cleaning each
section of our line and scheduling these
runs during optimum cycles to reduce the
potential for contamination. When allowed to
process according to normally scheduled
painted runs Chicago Steel defines "Best
Effort Basis" as the following:
Chicago Steel will always strive for
zero contamination. However, in spite of
our best efforts to clean the line there
is always the possibility that we will
pick up some dirt while processing
painted material. This is unavoidable
and Chicago Steel will not accept
responsibility for any contaminated
material that falls within the limits
set above. Chicago Steel is advising you
of this condition and requires that this
policy is agreed to, and signed for,
before any processing can be performed.
- The first coil in a production run
shall not exceed 400 feet (Head & Tail)
of contamination induced by Chicago
- All coils following the first coil
in a production run shall not exceed 80
feet (Head & Tail) of contamination
induced by Chicago Steel.
- It is Chicago Steel's responsibility
not to exceed these limits unless
otherwise agreed to by the customer and
approved in writing.
- Chicago Steel cannot guarantee a two
side prime painted product. There is a
chance that the bottom side can get a
light smudge that may not be detected.
However Chicago Steel will be
responsible for any contamination that
transfers over to the top (prime) side.
