n A thermoplastic from a processor’s own production that has been reground, pelletized, or solvated, after having been previously processed by molding, extrusion, etc. NOTE − In many specifications the use of reworked material is limited to clean plastic that meets the requirements specified for the virgin material, and yields a product essentially equal in quality to one made from only virgin material (ASTM D 883).
