Statement of Policy
The members of the Metal Finishing Association of Southern California and the National Association of Metal Finishers wish to remind you of the established practices of the metal finishing industry in processing your materials. These practices have been formalized and unanimously adopted by the members of this Association and Hixson Metal Finishing (HMF) as a Statement of Policy. It is generally recognized that even after employing all the science known to us, and capable persons with years of training and experience, there remain hazards in the electro-plating and metal finishing fields. Consequently, in order to avoid misunderstandings, we are hereby setting forth the conditions below under which your material will be accepted for processing:
1. Whenever we are given work for processing with detailed instructions as to treatment, our responsibility shall end with the carrying out of those instructions. Type of material, tolerance and specifications for processing shall be declared in writing prior to our processing.
Minimum charges for multiple processes will be evaluated based on part size, quantity and estimated labor to complete the processes. No Minimum Charge List can alone accurately provide the most competitive price for your parts without a thorough review of your blueprints and plating requirements.
