Demand for or recovery of goods by AFT shall not of itself discharge either the customer’s liability to pay the whole price and take delivery of the goods or AFT right to sue for the whole of the price.

The warranty cover extends to faulty workmanship and materials but excludes
operator abuse, fair wear and tear, modification by user or use for installation of fasteners other than those supplied or approved by AFT.

has the right to suspend delivery of goods and services to the Buyer by as many days as the said payments are overdue, provided however that the payment delay is not caused by AFT.
