Plastics and Rubber Products Manufacturing (NAICS 326)
The plastics and rubber products manufacturing sector (NAICS 326) includes establishments that make goods by processing plastics materials and raw rubber.
The man-made fiber industry (NAICS 422) covers the manufacturing of cellulosic, noncellulosic, and polyester fibers. Since 1953, most man-made fibers are synthetic fibers, so their production falls under plastics manufacturing.
