If a ball socket mount cracks it can easily be sent back to the supplier and replaced. Chemical supplies, on the other hand, can carry an environmental cost and require careful sourcing and disposal. Few OEMs are equipped to handle that challenge on their own. They need a firm that can manage the entire lifecycle of their chemical products.
