Most of the property values and test methods described herein are performed upon test coupons (samples / test pieces) manufactured to a specific simple geometry, rather than upon finished articles of differing geometries for different end-uses. Because of these geometric differences and because processing techniques (machining, pressing, etc.) will likely differ, the property values of a finished part can differ from that of a test coupon. Material performance can be strongly influenced by the applications conditions that differ from those of a test method. Please contact us early in the design process to review your application needs and discuss material, manufacturing, and design options.
