The first type is composed of a sheet steel core coated on both sides with material consisting of various mineral substances and rubber. You stated in your letter that the second type is the made of the same components except that the core is composed of cold-rolled stainless steel.

You indicated in your letter that both types of gasket material may be imported in either sheets, strips or coils. After importation both products will be used to make gaskets to seal joints exposed to high mechanical and thermal stress.

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 Jacob Bunin at 212-637-7074.
