You further state that the product is extruded in the form of a round or flat wire on a spool or in strips. The product is used to repair holes or other casting defects in bridgework or crowns.

The applicable subheading for the referenced Degudent G1 will be 7108.13.7000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States, which provides for Gold unwrought or in semimanufactured forms, or in powder form: Nonmonetary: Other semimanufactured forms: Other: Other. The rate of duty is 5.7 percent ad valorem. This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).
