Scope:

The merchandise subject to this investigation is sodium
hexametaphosphate (‘‘SHMP’’). SHMP
is a water–soluble polyphosphate glass
that consists of a distribution of
polyphosphate chain lengths. It is a
collection of sodium polyphosphate
polymers built on repeating NaPO3
units. SHMP has a P2O5 content from
60 to 71 percent. Alternate names for
SHMP include the following: Calgon;
Calgon S; Glassy Sodium Phosphate;
Sodium Polyphosphate, Glassy;
Metaphosphoric Acid; Sodium Salt;
Sodium Acid Metaphosphate; Graham’s
Salt; Sodium Hex; Polyphosphoric Acid,
Sodium Salt; Glass H; Hexaphos;
Sodaphos; Vitrafos; and BAC–N–FOS.
SHMP is typically sold as a white
powder or granule (crushed) and may
also be sold in the form of sheets (glass)
or as a liquid solution. It is imported
under heading 2835.39.5000, HTSUS. It
may also be imported as a blend or
mixture under heading 3824.90.3900,
HTSUS. The American Chemical
Society, Chemical Abstract Service
(‘‘CAS’’) has assigned the name
‘‘Polyphosphoric Acid, Sodium Salt’’ to
SHMP. The CAS registry number is
68915–31–1. However, SHMP is
commonly identified by CAS No.
10124–56–8 in the market. For purposes
of the investigation, the narrative
description is dispositive, not the tariff
heading, CAS registry number or CAS
name.
The product covered by this investigation includes SHMP in all
grades, whether food grade or technical
grade. The product covered by this
investigation includes SHMP without
regard to chain length i.e., whether
regular or long chain. The product
covered by this investigation includes
SHMP without regard to physical form,
whether glass, sheet, crushed, granule,
powder, fines, or other form, and
whether or not in solution.
However, the product covered by this
investigation does not include SHMP
when imported in a blend with other
materials in which the SHMP accounts
for less than 50 percent by volume of
the finished product.
