RE: The tariff classification of Bruggolite CH and CH 1, Bruggolite EP, Bruggolite TC, Blancolen PX 77 and Blancolen K from Germany.

Dear Mr. McDade:

In your letter dated January 11, 1991, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

Bruggolite CH and CH 1 contain 97-98.5% sodium formaldehyde sulfoxylate and 1.5-3% hexaethylenetetramine. They are both used as bleaching agents. Bruggolite EP contains 98.5-99.5% sodium formaldehyde sulfoxylate and 0.5-1.5% ethylenediamine tetracetate tetrasodium salt. It is used in catalysts. Bruggolite TC contains 99.5-99.9% sodium formaldehyde sulfoxylate and 0.1-0.5% sodium gluconate. It will be used in textile printing. Blancolen PX 77 contains sodium hydrosulfite, sodium sulfite, sodium borohydride, sodium polyacrylate, sodium hydroxyethanphosphonate and sodium gluconate. It will be used in bleaching paper and pulp. Blancolen K is said to be a sodium hydrosulfite blend. No further information was given nor was its use indicated. No classification will be given for this product.

The applicable subheading and duty for the above products under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), are as follows:

Product HTS no Duty

Bruggolite CH/CH1 2831.10.0000 17.5 percent ad valorem Bruggolite EP 2831.10.0000 17.5 percent ad valorem Bruggolite TC 2831.10.0000 17.5 percent ad valorem Blancolen PX 77 3809.92.5000 6 percent ad valorem

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Section 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of this ruling letter should be attached to the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If the documents have been filed without a copy, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
