The ultimate elongation of the films made with G1645 and MD1646 is given in figure 3, which shows that films from PP blends of both polymers can be stretched to more than 700%, and the ultimate elongation is very similar.
Among Chemline Arc physical properties: Shore 52 D hardness, 3,850 psi tensile strength; 570 pli tear resistance/ DIE-C; 425 percent ultimate elongation; and, 17.0 mg.
In a tensile test, the property of elongation at break, or ultimate elongation, is considered to be a relative measure of ductility.
Marigold gloves are also designed for enhanced performance and safety, surpassing ASTM standards for tensile strength and stress, ultimate elongation, tension set, tear and puncture resistance to deliver ultimate flexibility and dexterity.
Crosslinking leads to continuously rising viscosity with elongation, called strain hardening, and higher ultimate viscosities are reached up to ultimate elongation at break compared with non-crosslinked PA12.
Eco-Corr is said to be a highly efficient product that provides much better tensile strength, tear resistance and ultimate elongation than low density polyethylene (LDPE) films.

Mechanical properties in terms of tensile strength and ultimate elongation were later characterized to determine the most suitable mixing method.
Ultimate elongation is the percent strain at the point of material failure, and typically LSRs range from 250-1,100% elongation, and HCRs range from 450-1,300%.
In-house tests showed improvement of 50 and 60 per cent in ultimate tensile strength, 5 and 40 per cent in Charpy impact strength, and 20 and 35 per cent in ultimate elongation. The tests also showed that, for impact-modified products, the time needed for Charpy impact strength to fall to half of its original value was more than doubled for the new hydrolysis-resistant PBT compared to the corresponding non-stabilised PBT.
Koattro KT ARO5 boasts excellent compression-set performance at 70 C and has a flex modulus of 20 MPa (2900 psi), ultimate tensile strength of 12 MPa (1740 psi), and ultimate elongation >400%.
