I'm looking at a chart of material properties for some Fused Deposition Thermoplastics (www.RedEyeOnDemand.com). They have a property called "Elongation Strength" shown for the different materials (as a percent). For their Nylon 12 it is listed as "30%". I'm not sure what that number means. I'm guessing it's the "yield strength" as a percent of the Tensile Strength (listed as 7000 psi for this material)?
