Is Aluminium Stone In Anti-Dumping?

Aluminium stone composition is total different as silica quartz, silica quartz is made of 93% quartz sand, 7% resin, but aluminium stone is made of 40% quartz sand, 47% aluminium sand and 13% resin,So the silica weight is not more than other single material.

Anti-dumping Ruling:

The scope of the orders covers certain quartz surface products. Quartz surface products consist of slabs and other surfaces created from a mixture of materials that includes predominately silica (e.g., quartz, quartz powder, cristobalite) as well as a resin binder (e.g., an unsaturated polyester). The incorporation of other materials, including, but not limited to, pigments, cement, or other additives does not remove the merchandise from the scope of the orders. However, the scope of the orders only includes products where the silica content is greater than any other single material, by actual weight. Quartz surface products are typically sold as rectangular slabs with a total surface area of approximately 45 to 60 square feet and a nominal thickness of one, two, or three centimeters. However, the scope of the orders includes surface products of all other sizes, thicknesses, and shapes. In addition to slabs, the scope of the orders includes, but is not limited to, other surfaces such as countertops, backsplashes, vanity tops, bar tops, work tops, tabletops, flooring, wall facing, shower surrounds, fire place surrounds, mantels, and tiles. Certain quartz surface products are covered by the orders whether polished or unpolished, cut or uncut, fabricated or not fabricated, cured or uncured, edged or not edged, finished or unfinished, thermoformed or not thermoformed, packaged or unpackaged, and regardless of the type of surface finish.


So from the anti dumoing ruling, aluminium stone, the silica is not more than other single material. So the aluminium quartz is not in anti-dumping. 


And also alunimium stone, although we call it aluminium stone, but anti dumping is not for the name of the product, anti dumping is for the composition and HS Code. So even if we call it aluminium stone, but becasue the composition is total different as silica quartz, So aluminium quartz is not in anti dumping.
