“If the various HTS codes that cover some of the raw materials we purchase to manufacture our refractories remain on the latest list, we will see a price increase in the raw materials whose origin is China. The raw material tariff will increase the cost for some of our products supplied to the steel mills, aluminum producers and foundries in the USA. This in turn may increase their costs to the US consumer. It is a spiraling cost increase that we hope will be avoided by exempting some HTS codes.”
