In headings Nos. 40.01 to 40.03 and 40.05, the expression "primary forms" applies only to the following forms : (a) (b) Liquids and pastes (including latex, whether or not pre-vulcanised, and other dispersions and solutions); Blocks of irregular shape, lumps, bales, powders, granules, crumbs and similar bulk forms.

In Note 1 to this Chapter and in heading No. 40.02, the expression "synthetic rubber" applies to : (a) Unsaturated synthetic substances which can be irreversibly transformed by vulcanisation with sulphur into nonthermoplastic substances which, at a temperature between 18 °C and 29 ° C, will not break on being extended to three times their original length and will return, after being extended to twice their original length, within a period of five minutes, to a length not greater than one and a half times their original length. For the purposes of this test, substances necessary for the cross-linking, such as vulcanising activators or accelerators, may be added; the presence of substances as provided for by Note 5 (b) (ii) and (iii) is also permitted. However, the presence of any substances not necessary for the cross-linking, such as extenders, plasticisers and fillers, is not permitted; Thioplasts (TM); and Natural rubber modified by grafting or mixing with plastics, depolymerised natural rubber, mixtures of unsaturated synthetic substances with saturated synthetic high polymers provided that all the above-mentioned products comply with the requirements concerning vulcanisation, elongation and recovery in (a) above.
