(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 co
(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"
(d). Plates, sheets, strip and foil
Flat-surfaced products (other than the unwrought products of heading 7502), 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,
- 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 7506 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 t

O
Other elements, each
(b). Nickel alloys
Metallic substances in which nickel predominates by weight over each of the other elements provided that:
(i). The content by weight of cobalt exceeds 1.5 percent,
(ii). The content by weight of at least one of the elements is greater than the limit specified in the foregoing table, or
(iii). The total content by weight of elements other than nickel plus cobalt exceeds 1 percent.
