1Build orientation is on side long edge.
2Literature value unless otherwise noted.
3Due to amorphous nature, materials does not display a melting point.
4All Electrical Property values were generated from the average of test plaques built with default part density (solid). Test plaques were 4.0 x 4.0 x 0.1 inches (102 x 102 x 2.5 mm) and were built both in the flat and vertical orientation. The range of values is mostly the result of the difference in properties of test plaques built in the flat vs. vertical orientation
