Variant of NAICS 1997 - Labour Force Survey (LFS) Industries

3252 - Resin, Synthetic Rubber, and Artificial and Synthetic Fibres and Filaments Manufacturing

This industry group comprises establishments primarily engaged in manufacturing polymers such as resins, synthetic rubber, and textile fibres and filaments. Polymerization of monomers into polymers, for example of styrene into polystyrene, is the basic process.

32521 - Resin and Synthetic Rubber Manufacturing

This industry comprises establishments primarily engaged in manufacturing synthetic resins, plastics materials and synthetic rubber from basic organic chemicals.

  • Exclusion(s):

    Establishments primarily engaged in:

    • manufacturing rubber processing chemicals and plasticizers, whether separate chemical elements or compounds (See 32519 Other Basic Organic Chemical Manufacturing)
    • manufacturing plastics adhesives (See 32552 Adhesive Manufacturing)
    • custom compounding of resins produced elsewhere (See 32599 All Other Chemical Product Manufacturing)
    • processing rubber into intermediate or final products (See 3262 Rubber Product Manufacturing)

32522 - Artificial and Synthetic Fibres and Filaments Manufacturing

This industry comprises establishments primarily engaged in manufacturing artificial and synthetic fibres and filaments in the form of monofilament, filament yarn, staple or tow. Artificial fibres are made from organic polymers derived from natural raw materials, mainly cellulose. Synthetic fibres are generally derived from petrochemicals. Establishments that both manufacture and texture fibres are included.

  • Exclusion(s):

    Establishments primarily engaged in:

    • texturizing artificial and synthetic fibres and filaments produced elsewhere (See 31311 Fibre, Yarn and Thread Mills)
    • manufacturing glass fibres (See 32721 Glass and Glass Product Manufacturing)
