Notes: :
The above figures are just representative values but not specification values.
*1 Moist: In a saturated state in the atmosphere at 23<C and a relative humidity of 65% .
*2 Elongation was measured between the chucks.
*3 Test specimens of the non-reinforced grades were 2 mmt.

Unit conversion
1)Tensile strength, flexural strength,flexural modulus: 1 Mpa = 10.2 kg/cm2
2)Izod impact strength: 1 J/m=0.102 kg · cm/cm?
