Class Code: 4710

Per NCCI's Scopes Code Description:

Code 4710 is assigned to insureds engaged in the manufacture of candles. Beeswax, paraffin, stearin, wicks and aniline colors are received from others. The wax is heated in steam-jacketed vessels or gas-heated kettles into which wicks are dipped by use of dipping equipment which can be activated manually or automatically. When the candles attain the desired size and shape and have cooled, they are taken from the dipping cycle. After cutting the wicks, the candles are put into self-fitting end molds to shape the base. Color is added by dipping in the desired color wax. After cooling they are inspected, wrapped and packaged. Candles may also be manufactured in molds or hand decorated.

Code 4710 is also assigned to insureds engaged in the manufacture of wax for floors, furniture or polishes for shoes. The ingredients may be water, paraffin, ammonia, turpentine, oxalic acid, oils, resins, colors and detergents, depending upon the product. Some of the ingredients may be mixed cold, others heated and still others cooked. If the product is to be in stick or cake form, the mixture is poured into molds for the desired shape. Other waxes are poured into cans or plastic containers for packing and shipping.

Code 4710 is also assigned to the manufacture of solid fire starter, composed of wood fiberboard impregnated with paraffin, used in lighting charcoal and log fires even in unfavorable circumstances.
