Dear Mr. Komamura:

In your letter dated February 15, 2005 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The product is indicated for use as a raw material for polymides resin synthesis. It is said to increase heat-resistance and plasticity for polymides resin.

The applicable subheading for BPI will be 2925.19.4200, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Imides and their derivatives; salts thereof: Other: Aromatic: Other.. The rate of duty will be 6.5 percent ad valorem.

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

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 Stephanie Joseph at 646-733-3268.
