RE: The tariff classification of Prepared Hot-Melt Adhesives from Japan.

Dear Mr. Kelly:

In your letter dated on August 30, 1994, on behalf of your client Rexene Corporation, you requested a tariff classification ruling on four products. They will be classified as follows:

Item Classification Duty

RT 3280 3506.91.0000 2.1%
RT 3385 3506.91.0000 2.1%
RT 3535 3506.91.0000 2.1%
RT 3585 3506.91.0000 2.1%

The above hot-melt adhesives are designed, polymerized, formulated, packaged, advertised, sold, and used as hot-melt adhesives in the manufacture of roofing materials. They are designed to hold together the globules of bitumen, encapsulating the bitumen's volatile hydrocarbons, and enhancing the adhesive properties of the roofing end product. These adhesives contain copolymers including waxes ranging from 0.3 to 0.8 percent.

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.
