SIC Industry Description

Industry: 2824—Manmade Organic Fibers, Except Cellulosic
Establishments primarily engaged in manufacturing manmade organic fibers, except cellulosic (including those of regenerated proteins, and of polymers or copolymers of such components as vinyl chloride, vinylidene chloride, linear esters, vinyl alcohols, acrylonitrile, ethylenes, amides, and related polymeric materials), in the form of monofilament, yarn, staple, or tow suitable for further manufacturing on spindles, looms, knitting machines, or other textile processing equipment. Establishments primarily engaged in manufacturing textile glass fibers are classified in Industry 3229.
