Elongation vs tensile Stratasys Materials Chart

Elongation vs. Tensile

A material’s elongation at break value is the percentage increase in length that will occur before it breaks under tension, normally as a result of crack formation. The most rigid plastics will have values of 5% or less, with general engineering plastics measuring around 30%. High elongation and tensile strength properties lead to a material with high toughness. Chart a material’s resistance to cracking with its tensile strength

Heat Deflection vs. Impact Strength Stratasys Materials Chart

Heat Deflection vs. Impact Strength

Heat deflection temperature is a measure of a material’s ability to resist a constant load at an elevated temperature – a higher heat deflection temperature will give a material good mechanical performance even in high heat environments. Impact strength is a measure of a material’s ability to absorb shock and impact energy without breaking and is a component of a material’s toughness. Chart a material’s heat resistance with its ability to absorb shock and impact.

IMPACT Strength vs. Flexural Strength Stratasys Materials Chart

IMPACT Strength vs. Flexural Strength

Flexural strength is a measure of a material’s resistance to deformation under load, also known as stiffness. Flexible materials will have lower flexural strengths than rigid materials. Impact strength is a measure of a material’s ability to absorb shock and impact energy without breaking and is a component of a material’s toughness. A combination of high flexural strength and high impact strength is common amongst engineering grade plastics.  Chart a material’s shock absorption with its stiffness.
