Dear Ms. McCabe:

In your letter dated September 29, 2004, you requested a tariff classification ruling. The two provided samples will be returned as per your request.

The glove measures 12-inches in length and has an unfinished cut bottom. You have indicated that the glove weight breakdown is 93.6% PVC coating 6.4% cotton fabric.

The sample has a nitrile dip coating covering the entire palmside which extends to overlap the backside fingertips and outer edges of the hand.
