This practice is designed to evaluate, in an unstressed state, the chemical resistance of pultruded shapes used in the fabrication of reinforced thermosetting plastic (RTP) structures. This practice provides for the determination of changes in the properties, described as follows, of the test specimens and test reagent after exposure of the specimens to the reagent: hardness of specimens, weight change thickness, appearance of specimens, appearance of immersion media, and structural properties.
The standard is needed to provide engineers and specifiers a way to determine durability of pultruded shapes during material selection and subsequent design. Users will be material specifiers and structural engineers.
