Variant of NAICS 2002 - Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Sector

326 - Plastics and Rubber Products Manufacturing

This subsector comprises establishments primarily engaged in making goods by processing raw rubber and plastics materials. Rubber- and plastics-based activities are combined in the same subsector because the technical properties of these polymers are related.

Generally, establishments classified in this subsector manufacture products made of just one material, rubber or plastics, with the major exception of tire manufacturing.

  • Exclusion(s):

    Establishments primarily engaged in:

    • manufacturing synthetic resins from basic organic chemicals (See 325210 Resin and Synthetic Rubber Manufacturing)
    • compounding plastics resins from recycled materials (See 32599 All Other Chemical Product Manufacturing)

3261 - Plastic Product Manufacturing

This industry group comprises establishments primarily engaged in manufacturing intermediate or final products from plastics resins, using such processes as compression moulding, extrusion moulding, injection moulding, blow moulding and casting. The production process in most of these industries is such that a wide variety of products can be produced. The plastics resins used by these establishments may be new or recycled.

  • Exclusion(s):

    Establishments primarily engaged in:

    • manufacturing laminated film, sheet and bags of plastic combined with other materials (See 3222 Converted Paper Product Manufacturing)
    • manufacturing plastic hose and belting (See 3262 Rubber Product Manufacturing)

3262 - Rubber Product Manufacturing
