According to the information you provided, the foil consists of a layer of aluminum foil (12 microns in thickness) laminated on one side with polyester film (12 microns in thickness) and on the other side with polyethylene film (50 microns in thickness).

The applicable subheading for the packaging foil will be 3921.90.4090, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other plates, sheets, film, foil and strip, of plastics: other: flexible: other. The rate of duty will be 4.2 percent ad valorem.

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