     The term "cermets" includes sintered metal carbides (metal carbides sintered with a
     metal).

5.  Classification of alloys (other than ferroalloys and master alloys as defined in chapters
     72 and 74):

  (a). An alloy of base metals is to be classified as an alloy of the metal which
        predominates by weight over each of the other metals.

  (b). An alloy composed of base metals of this section and of elements not falling
        within this section is to be treated as an alloy of base metals of this section if the
        total weight of such metals equals or exceeds the total weight of the other
        elements present.

     includes a reference to alloys which, by virtue of note 5 above, are to be classified as
     alloys of that metal.

7.  Classification of composite articles:

    Except where the headings otherwise require, articles of base metal (including articles of
     mixed materials treated as articles of base metal under the general rules of
     interpretation) containing two or more base metals are to be treated as articles of the
     base metal predominating by weight over each of the other metals.  For this purpose:

  (a). Iron and steel, or different kinds of iron or steel, are regarded as one and the
        same metal;

  (b). An alloy is regarded as being entirely composed of that metal as an alloy of
        which, by virtue of note 3, it is classified; and

  (c). A cermet of heading 8113 is regarded as a single base metal.

8.  In this section, the following expressions have the meanings hereby assigned to them:

  (a). Waste and scrap

       Metal waste and scrap from the manufacture or mechanical working of metals,
        and metal goods definitively not usable as such because of breakage, cutting-up,
        wear or other reasons.

  (b). Powders

       Products of which 90 percent or more by weight passes through a sieve having a
        mesh aperture of 1 mm (0.039 inch).

Statistical Note

1.  For the purposes of this section, the term "unwrought" refers to metal, whether or not
     refined, in the form of ingots, blocks, lumps, billets, cakes, slabs, pigs, cathodes,
     anodes,  briquettes, cubes, sticks, grains, sponge, pellets, flattened pellets, rounds,
     rondelles, shot and similar manufactured primary forms, but does not cover rolled,
     forged, drawn or extruded products, tubular products or cast or sintered forms which
     have been machined or processed otherwise than by simple trimming, scalping or
     descaling.

        for angles, shapes or sections.

       These products are not presented in coils.

        rolling (for example, grooves, ribs, checkers, tears, buttons, lozenges) and those
        which have been perforated, corrugated or polished, provided that they do not
        thereby assume the character of articles or products of other headings.

        rectangles", of which two opposite sides are convex arcs, the other two sides
        being straight, of equal length parallel.  These products may have indentations,
        ribs, grooves or other deformations and produced during the rolling process
        (reinforcing bars and rods).

        (including squares), triangles or other convex polygons (including "flattened
        circles" and "modified rectangles", of which two opposite sides are convex arcs,
        the other two sides being straight, of equal length and parallel).  These products
        may:

       -  have indentations, ribs, grooves or other deformations produced during the
           rolling process (reinforcing bars and rods);

       -  be twisted after rolling.

  (n). Angles, shapes and sections

       Products having a uniform solid cross section along their whole length which do
        not conform to any of the definitions at (i), (j), (k), (l) or (m) above or to the

        greatest external dimension of the cross section exceeds 15 mm (0.59 inch) but
        does not exceed 52 mm (2.05 inches), and of which the greatest internal
        dimension does not exceed one half of the greatest external dimension.  Hollow
        bars and rods of iron or steel not conforming to this definition are to be
        classified in heading 7304.

2.  Ferrous metals clad with another ferrous metal are to be classified as products of the
     ferrous metal predominating by weight.

3.  Iron or steel products obtained by electrolytic deposition, by pressure casting or by
     sintering are to be classified according to their form, their composition and their
     appearance, in the headings of this chapter appropriate to similar hot-rolled products.

Subheading Notes

1.  In this chapter the following expressions have the meanings hereby assigned to them:

  (a). Alloy pig iron

       Pig iron containing, by weight, one or more of the following elements in the
        specified proportions:

       -  more than 0.2 percent of chromium

       -  more than 0.3 percent of copper

       -  more than 0.3 percent of nickel

       -  more than 0.1 percent of any of the following elements: aluminum,
           molybdenum, titanium, tungsten (wolfram), vanadium.

  (b). Nonalloy free-cutting steel

       -  more than 0.05 percent of bismuth.

  (c). Silicon electrical steel

       Alloy steels containing by weight at least 0.6 percent but not more than 6 percent
        of silicon and not more than 0.08 percent of carbon.  They may also contain by
        weight not more than 1 percent of aluminum but no other element in a
        proportion that would give the steel the characteristics of another alloy steel.

  (d). High-speed steel

       Alloy steels containing, with or without other elements, at least two of the three
        elements molybdenum, tungsten and vanadium with a combined content by weight of
        7 percent or more, 0.6 percent or more of carbon and 3 to 6 percent of chromium.

  (e). Silico-manganese steel

       Alloy steels containing by weight:

       -  not more than 0.7 percent of carbon,

       -  0.5 percent or more but not more than 1.9 percent of manganese, and

       -  0.6 percent or more but not more than 2.3 percent of silicon, but no other
           element in a proportion that would give the steel the characteristics of another
           alloy steel.

2.  For the classification of ferroalloys in the subheadings of heading 7202 the following
     rule should be observed:

    A ferroalloy is considered as binary and classified under the relevant subheading (if it
     exists) if only one of the alloy elements exceeds the minimum percentage laid down in
     chapter note 1(c); by analogy, it is considered respectively as ternary or quaternary if two
     or three alloy elements exceed the minimum percentage.

    For the application of this rule, the unspecified "other elements" referred to in chapter
     note 1(c) must each exceed 10 percent by weight.
