RE: The tariff classification of coated fabric for use in the repair of hair pieces, from the Philippines.

Dear Ms. Shannahan:

In your letter dated April 16, 1991, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The sample submitted consists of a woven fabric of 100% polyester man-made fiber construction that has been overlaid with a somewhat fine diamond mesh of knit fabric of the same fiber composition. These two fabrics seem to be joined by a clear polyurethane plastics applied to the top surface of the knit material. The fabric, as a whole, is not encased in plastic. Your letter indicates that the coating weighs 48g/sq./ft. while the textile portion weighs 12.8g/sq./ft. The finished fabric is stated to weigh 340 grams per square meter.

The applicable subheading for fabric will be 5903.20.2000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for textile fabrics impregnated, coated, covered or laminated with plastics, with polyurethane, of man- made fibers, over 70 percent by weight of rubber or plastics. The rate of duty will be 4.2 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.

Please be advised that there are no textile restraints for this merchandise.
