2011 Schedule B - Chapter 79

Section XV - Chapter 79

Zinc and Articles Thereof

Note

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

  (a). Bars and rods

       Rolled, extruded, drawn or forged products, not in coils, which have a uniform
        solid cross section along their whole length in the shape of circles, ovals,
        rectangles (including squares), equilateral triangles or regular 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).  Products with a rectangular (including square), triangular or polygonal
        cross section may have corners rounded along their whole length.  The thickness
        of such products which have a rectangular (including "modified rectangular")
        cross section exceeds one-tenth of the width.  The expression also covers cast or
        sintered products of the same forms and dimensions, which have been
        subsequently worked after production (otherwise than by simple trimming or
        descaling), provided that they have not thereby assumed the character of articles
        or products of other headings.

   (b). Profiles

        Rolled, extruded, drawn, forged or formed products, coiled or not, of a uniform
         cross section along their whole length, which do not conform to any of the
         definitions of bars, rods, wire, plates, sheets, strip, foil, tubes or pipes.  The
         expression also covers cast or sintered products, of the same forms, which have
         been subsequently worked after production (otherwise than by simple trimming
         or descaling), provided that they have not thereby assumed the character of
         articles or products of other headings.

   (c). Wire

        Rolled, extruded or drawn products, in coils, which have a uniform solid cross
         section along their whole length in the shape of circles, ovals, rectangles
         (including squares), equilateral triangles or regular 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).
         Products with a rectangular (including square), triangular or polygonal cross
         section may have corners rounded along their whole length.  The thickness of
         such products which have a rectangular (including "modified rectangular") cross
         section exceeds one-tenth of the width.

  (d). Plates, sheets, strip and foil

       Flat-surfaced products (other than the unwrought products of heading 7901),
        coiled or not, of solid rectangular (other than square) cross section with or
        without rounded corners (including "modified rectangles" of which two opposite
        sides are convex arcs, the other two sides being straight, of equal length and
        parallel) of a uniform thickness, which are:

       -  of rectangular (including square) shape with a thickness not exceeding
           one-tenth of the width,

       -  of a shape other than rectangular or square, of any size, provided that
           they do not assume the character of articles or products of other
           headings.

       Heading 7905 applies, inter alia, to plates, sheets, strip and foil with patterns (for
        example, grooves, ribs, checkers, tears, buttons, lozenges) and to such products
        which have been perforated, corrugated, polished or coated, provided that they
        do not thereby assume the character of articles or products of other headings.

  (e). Tubes and pipes

       Hollow products, coiled or not, which have a uniform cross section with only one
        enclosed void along their whole length in the shape of circles, ovals, rectangles
        (including squares), equilateral triangles or regular convex polygons, and which
        have a uniform wall thickness.  Products with a rectangular (including square),
        equilateral triangular or regular convex polygonal cross section, which may have
        corners rounded along their whole length, are also to be considered as tubes and
        pipes provided the inner and outer cross sections are concentric and have the
        same form and orientation.  Tubes and pipes of the foregoing cross sections may
        be polished coated, bent, threaded, drilled, waisted, expanded, cone-shaped or
        fitted with flanges, collars or rings.

Subheading Note

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

  (a). Zinc, not alloyed

       Metal containing by weight at least 97.5 percent of zinc.

  (b). Zinc alloys

       Metallic substances in which zinc predominates by weight over each of the other
        elements, provided that the total content by weight of such other elements
        exceeds 2.5 percent.

  (c). Zinc dust

       Dust obtained by condensation of zinc vapor, consisting of spherical particles
        which are finer than zinc powders.  At least 80 percent by weight of the particles
        pass through a sieve with 63 micrometers (microns) mesh.  It must contain at
        least 85 percent by weight of metallic zinc.
