Terms of Trading

Terms of Trading

Terms & Conditions

All orders are accepted and all sales made subject to the terms and conditions on the invoice and to the following provisions.

The placing of or proceeding in any matter with any order by the Buyer shall be deemed acceptance by the Buyer of these terms and conditions.

'Products' are any of the range of products sold by Sealers Direct Ltd.

All prices include VAT at the current rate.


1.1 All orders and sales contracts are subject to acceptance or rejection by Sealers Direct Ltd, and are not binding on Sealers Direct Ltd unless and until so accepted. Acceptance of any order by Sealers Direct Ltd constitutes a complete and binding contract subject to these terms and conditions of sales. Acceptance is at all times subject to availability for delivery of the Products covered by each order, and to Sealers Direct Ltd prices for the Products in effect at the time of shipment unless otherwise agreed in a separate agreement signed by the Buyer and Sealers Direct Ltd. Prices on the invoice are those in effect on the date this document was issued.

1.2 All images of our products are for website display purposes only.

1.3 The style of containers/drums of our product may differ to the images on our site when delivered.

1.4 Sealers Direct Ltd reserves the right to deliver smaller containers but the same volume of material in total contained therein if needed.
ie. 5 x 5ltr containers boxed instead of 1 x 25 ltr container/drum
ie. 4 x 5ltr containers boxed instead of 1 x 20 ltr container/drum
ie. 2 x 5ltr containers boxed instead of 1 x 10ltr container/drum

2. End Use

2.1 The information offered about our products is done in good faith based upon information believed to be true. It is offered for your consideration but no warranty is offered or implied.

2.2 You should ensure the product is suitable prior to use. This is particularly important when the surface to which it is to be applied has been sealed/ treated previously.

2.3 We warrant that our products will be free of defects for a period of 12 months from date of despatch. As we have no control over application or installation, no claims will be accepted for defects on applied or installed products unless they relate to a defect in the product itself. A bloom (milky white effect) in a finished sealed surface is not a product defect, this is caused by residual damp or atmospheric damp and is rectifiable at the customers cost.

2.4 Any chemical product that is claimed defective as a result of negligent storage whilst in your possession will render the warranty null and void. Chemical must be stored in dry conditions, protect from frost and freezing.

2.5 Determination of the suitability or fitness of the Products described in the invoice for the use or purpose contemplated by the Buyer or the Buyer’s customers shall be the responsibility of the Buyer, and Sealers Direct Ltd shall have no responsibility or liability in this respect. The Buyer assumes all risk and liability for loss, damage, or injury to property or Buyer or others and for all personal injuries caused to Buyer or others arising out of the use or possession of the Products. The Buyer agrees to indemnify Sealers Direct Ltd against all claims, demands and actions brought by others against Sealers Direct Ltd or its’ servants or agents in respect of loss damage or injury to persons or property arising out of the use or possession of the Products.

3. Warranty

3.1 Sealers Direct Ltd warrants that the Products supplied shall conform to the description or specifications stated in the invoice. To the full extent allowed by law, the liability of Sealers Direct Ltd with respect to any breach of the warranty shall be limited, at the option of Sealers Direct Ltd, to payment of the cost of replacing the Products or of acquiring equivalent Products, and in no case shall Sealers Direct Ltd be liable for consequential loss or damage. Nothing contained in this contract excludes, restricts or modifies any condition, warranty, right or remedy which, pursuant to the Trade Practices Act 1974 (The “Act”), applies to this contract or is conferred upon the Buyer, provided that to the extent that the Act permits Sealers Direct Ltd to limit its liability for a breach of condition or warranty implied by the Act, then the liability of Sealers Direct Ltd for such a breach shall be limited, in the case of Products supplied pursuant to this Agreement, to the payment of the cost of replacing the Products or of acquiring equivalent Products.

4. Risk of Loss
4.1 The risk of loss or delay in relation to all Products supplied shall pass to Buyer upon Sealers Direct Ltd’s delivery to the Buyer's nominated carrier at the shipping point or store of Sealers Direct Ltd notwithstanding any payment of freight by Sealers Direct Ltd.

5. Retention of Title

5.1 Sealers Direct Ltd shall retain title and ownership of the Products until such time as the Buyer has paid for them.

5.2 Sealers Direct Ltd shall be entitled to recover the Products from the Buyer in the event that the Buyer does not pay for them within 28 days.

6. Orders for indefinite delivery

6.1 Orders with indefinite delivery dates are accepted upon the understanding that Sealers Direct Ltd shall have the right to fill said order as it sees fit in the course of the manufacturing or importation schedules and to hold the Products for the Buyer’s account at the Buyer’s expense and risk pending receipt of definite shipping instructions and, where required, of government authorization.

7. Indemnity

7.1 The Buyer must indemnify Sealers Direct Ltd against any liability, loss, damage or expense (including legal costs on a full indemnity basis) incurred as a result of any of the following:

7.1.1 A wilful or negligent act or omission by the Buyer;

7.1.2 Any warranty or representation made by the Buyer that was inaccurate or misleading.

8. Liability

8.1 All conditions and warranties of any type in relation to the Product are excluded to the maximum extent allowed by the law. In respect of product which is not of a kind ordinarily acquired for personal, domestic or household use or consumption, the liability of Sealers Direct Ltd for a breach of any condition or warranty implied by law is limited to the replacement of the Product or the supply of equivalent Product.

9. Change or cancellation of orders

9.1 Sealers Direct Ltd will give due consideration to any request of the Buyer for modification or cancellation of its order or release against an order, but the order may not be modified or cancelled without the written consent of Sealers Direct Ltd. The waiver by Sealers Direct Ltd of a breach by the Buyer of any provision of the order shall not constitute a waiver of any other breach by Buyer or of a subsequent breach of that or any provision by the Buyer.

9.2 Sealers Direct Ltd reserve the right to deduct a delivery charge from any order where attempted delivery is made but not completed due to incorrect information given by client at time order is placed. If the order is cancelled in transit due to a change of circumstances a refund can be made minus any delivery and handling charges incurred by Sealers Direct Ltd.

10. Contingencies

10.1 In the event of war, fire, flood, strike, labour trouble, accident, riot, act of government authority, act of God or other contingencies beyond the control of the parties, interfering with the production, supply, transportation or consumption of the Products covered by this order, or with the supply of any raw material used in connection therewith, quantities so affected may be eliminated from the contract without liability, but the contract shall otherwise remain unaffected.

13. Terms of Payment

It shall be the Buyer’s responsibility to take out such insurance during carriage, as he considers appropriate. In the event of any general increase or any ruling or regulation affecting such rates resulting in increased freight charges, Sealers Direct Ltd may, at its option, increase its price to reflect such additional freight charges without advance notice.
