"Warranty Ixion instruments are warranted to be free of defects in material and workmanship for 5 years. DB Orthodontics will sharpen free of charge within 1 year of purchase any cutter which fails to cut the intended wire size. Mis-use, abuse or failure to maintain or care for instruments properly will void warranty claims. DB Orthodontics’s sole responsibility will be, at its own discretion, to repair or replace or credit the instrument in the event of any claimed defects. Adherence to recommended cleaning, sterilization and lubrication practices will help ensure optimum instrument performance. Cutting instruments that are used frequently should be reconditioned as required. Joints should be lubricated with a medical grade lubricant during every decontamination procedure. Warranty does not cover routine maintenance, sharpening or reconditioning."
