I'm trying to find the Poisson ratio for a number of polymers and composites but I'm having trouble doing so. Is there a reason that this information is so hard to come by? I know that most polymers have a range of 0.3 to 0.5, but specific values are needed for this application.
The materials in question are:
ABS PC EMI 262 EMI 361 RTP 681 Ultem 1000
