  • If the buyer incorporates such goods into other products, with the addition of his goods or those or others, or uses such goods as materials for other products, with or without such addition, the property in those products is upon such incorporation for use ipso facto transferred to the Company and the buyer as bailee of them for the Company will store the same for the Company in a proper manner without charge to the Company.
