Dear Mr. Conta:

In your letter dated October 1, 2001, you requested a tariff classification ruling for DURSALIT “LK 964” and DURSALIT “LM-22”

DURSALIT “LM-22”, which is used as a sodium and calcium remover for aluminum and aluminum alloys, as well as for covering and the refining of aluminum-magnesium alloys, is composed of 65% magnesium chloride and 35% potassium chloride.

This provision is duty free.
