Dear Ms. Ferguson:

In your letter dated March 16, 2007, you requested a tariff classification ruling.

These strips meet the dimensional requirements to be considered textile strips. Your correspondence indicates that this product will be used as a breathable house wrap in the construction industry. The sample submitted will be returned to you as requested.

The applicable subheading for this fabric will be 5407.20.0000, HTSUS, which provides for woven fabrics of synthetic filament yarn, including woven fabrics obtained from the materials of heading 5404, woven fabrics obtained from strip or the like. The rate of duty will be Free.
