Section XV - Chapter 76

Aluminum 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 7601), 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.

       Headings 7606 and 7607 apply, 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, wasted, expanded, cone-shaped or fitted with
        flanges, collars or rings.

Subheading Notes

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

  (a). Aluminum, not alloyed

       Metal containing by weight at least 99 percent of aluminum, provided that the
        content by weight of any other element does not exceed the limit specified in the
        following table:

       Table - Other elements

       Element                         Limiting content percent by weight
       Fe + Si (Iron plus Silicon)     1.0
       Other elements (1), each        0.1 (2)

       (1). Other elements are, for example, Cr, Cu, Mg, Mn, Ni, Zn.

       (2). Copper is permitted in a proportion greater than 0.1 percent
             but not more than 0.2 percent, provided that neither the
             chromium nor manganese content exceeds 0.05 percent.

  (b). Aluminum alloys

       Metallic substances in which aluminum predominates by weight over each of the
        other elements provided that:

      (i).   The content by weight of at least one of the other elements or of iron plus
              silicon taken together is greater than the limit specified in the foregoing
              table; or

      (ii).  The total content by weight of such other elements exceeds 1 percent.

2.  Notwithstanding the provisions of note 1(c), for the purposes of subheading 7616.91 the
     term "wire" applies only to products, whether or not in coils, of any cross-sectional
     shape, of which no cross-sectional dimension exceeds 6 mm.

Statistical Note

1.  For the purposes of this chapter, the term "aluminum vanadium master alloy" refers to
     aluminum alloys which contain by weight 20 percent or more of vanadium.
