RE: The tariff classification of a jacquard woven upholstery fabric containing an acrylic coating, from Canada.

Dear Mr. LeClair:

In your letters dated April 9, and May 15, 1996, on behalf of Master Fabrics, Montreal, Canada, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The instant sample, identified as "pascale", consists of a jacquard woven upholstery fabric containing a floral design. The material is composed of 60% rayon and 40% polyester man-made fibers. This material has been coated on the under surface with a white pigmented acrylic plastics material which is in a sufficient amount to be visible to the naked eye. This material is for use as an upholstery fabric for chair and couch coverings. You provided the following weight specifications for this material:

Wt. of textile: 4.770oz/y2 (95%) Wt. of plastic 0.248oz/y2 (5%) Total wt.: 5.018oz/y2 (100%)

The applicable tariff provision for the material will be 5903.90.2500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States Annotated (HTSUSA), which provides for textile fabrics impregnated, coated, covered or laminated with plastics, ... of man-made fibers, not over 70 percent by weight of rubber or plastics. The general rate of duty will be 8.3 percent ad valorem.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 CFR 177).

A copy of the ruling or the control number indicated above should be provided with the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If you have any questions regarding the ruling, contact National Import Specialist George Barth at 212-466-5884.
