Performance properties


Performance properties[1] of materials refer to such things as thermal and electrical conductivity, water resistance, texture, flexibility, colour, etc. Subjective measurement is reliant on people’s perception (tasty, evokes a sense of natural beauty, warm and inviting, and so on), whereas objective measurement is not (conductivity, UV resistance, and so on).
