This practice outlines a method for classifying reinforced plastic pultruded shapes according to their composition. In classifying the reinforced plastic pultruded shape according to composition, four separate aspects of the composition shall be considered: reinforced material; reinforcement type; resin type; and filler amount. The composition shall be identified by the use of four capital letters. The sequential position of each letter shall have particular significance in describing the composition.
