Class Code 4557

Ink Manufacturing

Class code 4557 is used for employees that work within a facility that manufactures all types of ink or that manufactures candles. For ink production, raw materials such as vegetable and mineral oils, solvents, alcohols, resins, pigments, aniline dyes, wetting agents, dryers, lampblack, and sulphuric, hydrochloric, and acetic acids are received from others and cooked, measured, blended, and milled to the desired smoothness for the ink being produced. For candle manufactures, raw materials will include things like beeswax, paraffin, stearin, wicks, and aniline colors. The waxes will be heated and then wicks will be dipped into them using dipping equipment and formed. After they are allowed to cool and harden, the wicks are cut, color is added, and they are inspected, wrapped, and packaged. Exclusions that are similar in nature but that should be classified separately include oil refining operations and oil or gasoline dealers.
