RE: The tariff classification of thick film from Taiwan.

Dear Ms. Diaz:

In your letter dated October 27, 1997, on behalf of your client DuPont Electronics, you requested a tariff classification ruling for 5 types of thick film which you have stated will be applied to a non-conducting substrate to form conductive, resistive or insulating films.

The applicable subheading for all the above products will be 3824.90.7000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for prepared binders for foundry molds or cores; chemical products and preparations of the chemical or allied industries (including those consisting of mixtures of natural products), not elsewhere specified or included; residual products of the chemical or allied industries, not elsewhere specified or included: other. This provision is free of duty. This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Part 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).
