Class Code: 4114

Per NCCI's Scopes Code Description:

Code 4114 applies to the manufacture of glassware utilizing a mechanical process wherein blowing is done by compressed air on specialized forming machines. Crushed glass, lime, silica sand, phosphate, antimony oxide, arsenic trioxide, silica, silica fluorides, borax, and soda ash are received from others. The raw materials of predetermined mixture are charged into furnaces. When the mixture has been brought to the correct consistency, it is gathered by machine and moved to molds formed in the shape of the product to be made. The wares are then automatically blown by compressed air for mass production. From the molds, the product moves through tempering furnaces. The application of coloring agents and further tempering are additional operations that may be performed. The products falling within the scope of this classification are milk bottles, soft drink bottles, fruit and jelly jars, and similar type glass containers with little or no ornamental value.

Code 4114 is a “not otherwise classified” (NOC) classification. This means that Code 4114 applies to an employer’s operation(s) only when no other classification more specifically describes the employer’s operation(s). The following is a representative list of operations somewhat related in nature to Code 4114 operations that are not assigned to Code 4114.
