      powder, granules or flakes);

(b)  Articles of Chapter 71 (for example, imitation jewellery);

(c)  Optical fibre cables of heading 85.44, electrical insulators (heading 85.46) or fittings of insulating material of
      heading 85.47;

(d)  Optical fibres, optically worked optical elements, hypodermic syringes, artificial eyes, thermometers,
      barometers, hydrometers or other articles of Chapter 90;

2.-For the purposes of headings 70.03, 70.04 and 70.05 :

(a)  glass is not regarded as " worked " by reason of any process it has undergone before annealing;

(b)  cutting to shape does not affect the classification of glass in sheets;

(c)  the expression " absorbent, reflecting or non-reflecting layer " means a microscopically thin coating of metal
      or of a chemical compound (for example, metal oxide) which absorbs, for example, infra-red light or
      improves the reflecting qualities of the glass while still allowing it to retain a degree of transparency or
      translucency; or which prevents light from being reflected on the surface of the glass.

3.-The products referred to in heading 70.06 remain classified in that heading whether or not they have the
  character of articles.

4.-For the purposes of heading 70.19, the expression " glass wool " means :

(a)  Mineral wools with a silica (SiO2) content not less than 60 % by weight;

(b)  Mineral wools with a silica (SiO2) content less than 60 % but with an alkaline oxide (K2O or Na2O) content
      exceeding 5 % by weight or a boric oxide (B2O3) content exceeding 2 % by weight.

    Mineral wools which do not comply with the above specifications fall in heading 68.06.

5.-Throughout the Nomenclature, the expression " glass " includes fused quartz and other fused silica.
