We may from time to time provide interactive services on our site, including, without limitation:
Where we do provide any interactive service, we will provide clear information to you about the kind of service offered, if it is moderated and what form of moderation is used (including whether it is human or technical). We will do our best to assess any possible risks for users (and in particular, for children) from third parties when they use any interactive service provided on our site, and we will decide in each case whether it is appropriate to use moderation of the relevant service (including what kind of moderation to use) in the light of those risks. However, we are under no obligation to oversee, monitor or moderate any interactive service we provide on our site, and we expressly exclude our liability for any loss or damage arising from the use of any interactive service by a user in contravention of our content standards, whether the service is moderated or not. The use of any of our interactive services by a minor is subject to the consent of their parent or guardian. We advise parents who permit their children to use an interactive service that it is important that they communicate with their children about their safety online, as moderation is not foolproof. Minors who are using any interactive service should be made aware of the potential risks to them. Where we do moderate an interactive service, we will normally provide you with a means of contacting the moderator, should a concern or difficulty arise.
These content standards apply to any and all material which you contribute to our site (contributions), and to any interactive services associated with it.

Our technical service department receives many phone calls and e-mails daily.
Technical help is a free service offered by Bentley Advanced Materials. to assist end-users of rubbers, plastics, foams and other materials in realising their project objectives. Each Bentley technician has experience using materials and has been exposed to a variety of applications that qualifies him or her to offer technical support.
We find that people often have the wrong impression as to just what our responsibilities are in offering this service and want to be very clear about what you should and should not expect from us.
Discussing your project objectives and then recommending a material or combination of materials that we think will you meet your objectives is the best we can do in making a recommendation.
We can never guarantee or warranty that any Bentley product will work for your specific application for the simple reason that, in using these materials, there is a lot that can go wrong that is not material related. We have no control over the many processing variables associated with working with these materials such complexity of the project, aptitude of the user (experience and ability) and processing conditions such as environment.
Beginners especially have a high rate of “first time” failure due to inexperience with these materials and mould making/casting in general. Bentley is responsible for the quality of the material that you buy, not the experience level of the end-user. Because no two applications are quite the same, a small test application to determine suitability is recommended if material performance is in question. User shall determine suitability of the product for the intended application and assume all associated risks and liability.
We want you to be successful every time! If you are new to mould making and casting, your best defence against product failure is to read the technical bulletin for the product you are using and follow directions carefully.
