You have indicated that the latex coating exceeds 50% of the weight of the coated knitted fabric. The remaining three backside fingers are constructed of a printed cotton canvas material. The glove features a ribbed knit fabric cuff and a 1 1/2 inch long elastic strip in a coordinated color sewn on the backside centered above the cuff. The glove does not have fourchettes.

The applicable subheading for the glove will be 6116.10.1300, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Gloves, mittens and mitts, knitted or crocheted: impregnated, coated or covered with plastics or rubber: other: without fourchettes: cut and sewn from pre-existing machine-knit fabric that is impregnated, coated or covered with plastics or rubber: of vegetable fibers: containing over 50 percent by weight of plastics or rubber. The duty rate will be 21.2 percent ad valorem. In 1998, the duty rate will be 20 percent ad valorem.

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