The article at issue, part drawing # 3202047-002, is a viton rubber conn rod washer (seal) designed for use on a progressive cavity liquid pump. For purposes of the tariff schedules, Viton is considered to be a synthetic rubber. The washer is designed solely for use with those pumps. It's function is to prevent leakage from one cavity to another.

The applicable subheading for the viton rubber washer will be 8413.91.9080, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other parts of liquid pumps, other. The rate of duty will be 1.8 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 Karl J. Riedl at 212-466-5493.
