The chief weight of the multilayer construction is polyethylene.

The sample is being returned as you requested.

The applicable subheading for the FS film will be 3920.10.0000, HTS, which provides for other plates, sheets, film, foil and strip, of plastics, noncellular and not reinforced, laminated, supported or similarly combined with other materials: of polymers of ethylene. The rate of duty will be 4.2 percent ad valorem.
