Class Code: 2413

Per NCCI's Scopes Code Description:

Applies to employers that receive crude fabric from weaving or spinning mills. The fabric is bleached, dyed, mercerized, printed and inspected.

Mercerizing is the treatment of the textile in a chemical solution to give it luster, strength, and receptiveness to dyes. The textiles are dried, measured, singed and calendered into a “finished fabric,” which is shipped to other plants to be made into salable textile products. The above-described operations involve the use of considerable machinery.

The following distinguishes between three possible codes that may apply to silk screen printing.

Code 2501 applies to the silk screening of individual garments, caps, etc., done by hand. This code applies to operations done by hand or through the use of a machine of a multiport nature where a number of garments may be loaded onto the machine at the same time. This type of machine resembles an octopus or carousel and usually applies a different color at each of a number of ports around the machine to create a multicolor picture or pattern.

Code 2417 applies to the silk screening of rolls of cloth using machinery. This machinery is somewhat akin to commercial printing presses found in print shops. This code must not be assigned to an employer that performs operations described by another classification.

Code 2413 applies to silk screening of rolls of cloth when an employer is in the business of processing crude cloth into finished cloth and as part of this process performs machine silk screening of the cloth. In the event that an employer performs cloth processing but silk screens individual garments by hand, this hand silk screening operation is assigned to Code 2501, with the remainder of the cloth processing operation assigned to Code 2413.

Employers that perform flocking operations are additionally classified to Code 2413. This assignment does not include employers that manufacture flock but those that coat flock onto existing textiles to finish these materials into products such as imitation suede, which may be used for upholstering, apparel, packing or automotive products. Refer to Code 2288 for employers that manufacture flock from raw materials.
