Glossary of Product Properties and Test Parameters

This glossary contains descriptionriptions of key material properties, so that the user can better understand the products capabilities and limitations.

It is important to note that not all products are necessarily tested agains the same conditons, as they are not all necessarily relevant to either the product or the application

Breakdown VoltageThis electrical property is thickness dependent and is the maximum amount of voltage that a dielectric material can withstand before breaking down. The breakdown voltage is calculated by multiplying the dielectric strength of the material times the thickness of the film.

Single- or Double-Sided AdhesiveDescribes whether a tape is single- or double-sided. If it is single-sided, it has adhesive only on one side of the backing film. If it is double-sided, then it has adhesive on both sided of the backing film.

Temperature Range
Temperature ResistanceTemperature resistance is the maximum temperature that the material or product can withstand for a period of time. The temperatures listed should be considered as guidelines for an operating temperature of about 30 minutes. Typically, the material can withstand much longer times at temperatures about 20°C lower and can withstand much higher temperatures for short, intermittent times.

UL 94 RatingThe UL 94 standard classifies plastics according to how they burn in various orientations and thicknesses. From lowest (least flame-retardant) to highest (most flame-retardant): HB: slow burning on a horizontal specimen; burning rate particles allowed as long as they are not inflamed. V-0: burning stops within 10 seconds on a vertical specimen; drips of particles allowed as long as they are not inflamed. 5VB: burning stops within 60 seconds on a vertical specimen; no drips allowed; plaque specimens may develop a hole. 5VA: burning stops within 60 seconds on a vertical specimen; no drips allowed; plaque specimens may not develop a hole.

Volume ResistivityVolume resistivity, also called volume resistance, bulk resistance or bulk resistivity is a thickness dependent measurement of the resistivity of a material perpendicular to the plane of the surface.
