    CF: Carbon Fiber, ESD: Electrostatic Discharge safe, GF: Glass Fiber, FR: Flame Retardant

    HDT (Heat Deflection Temperature): Test bar deflection of 0.01" (0.25 mm) with a load of 0.46 MPa (66 psi)

    Modulus: MPa 

    Tensile Strength: MPa

    Fracture Elongation: Percent change in length at the point of failure under the tensile load

    tensile modulus
    Tensile Modulus

    The modulus is a measure of the stiffness of a material; higher values will result in a stiffer object. Flexural is the measure against bending, whereas tensile is the measure against compression or tension. The strength is the measure of pressure (distributed force) the part can withstand before failure.
