RE: The tariff classification of Stonecoat System from Taiwan

Dear Mr. Rocha:

In your letter dated June 3, 1996, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The sample submitted, Stonecoat System, is a three part system, consisting of an undercoat, a base coat and a top coat. Stonecoat System is made of natural granite particles, ceramic particles and water-resistant resins. Stonecoat System is designed to be applied to interior and exterior walls using spraying tools and techniques, and gives these surfaces the appearance of granite stone.

The applicable subheading for the Stonecoat System will be 3214.90.5000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for glaziers' putty, grafting putty, resin cements, caulking compounds and other mastics; painters' fillings; nonrefractory surfacing preparations for facades, indoor walls, floors, ceilings or the like: Other: other. The rate of duty will be 10.1 percent ad valorem.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 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 V. Gualario at 212-466-5744.
