Note : The above typical values shown are based on average test result on standard samples. Properties are subjected to reasonable variation based on product shape etc. and hence should be considered for general guidence only.

The above data is determined by regular sample testing in accordance with British Standard 1902 (where applicable). Because normal manufacturing tolerances apply, the data should not be taken as a precise specification.
