Aptness to break; fragility.
The tendency of a dried film to crack or flake when bent, flexed, or scratched.
That property of a material which causes it to break or fail when deformed by bending.
The measurement of how prone a material is to result in a brittle fracture when placed under stress.
The tendency of a coating film to crack or snap when subjected to deformation.
A condition of the finish that causes it to flake-off or crack when it is scratched.
The tendency to crack or flake when bent or stretched.
The final stage of paper deterioration.
The tendency of paper to crack or break when bent or embossed.
A severe condition of paper deterioration where paper loses its flexibility and thus chips and/or flakes easily.
The properties that determine how likely something is to break under force.
When paper has deteriorated to the point that it will crumble when touched.
the tendency for a compound to fracture rather than bend when rapidly deformed at some low temperature; brittleness tests give one indication of when a compound may no longer be expected to function well as an elastomeric material
The lack of resistance to cracking or breaking of a paint film when bent or flexed.
A tendency to fracture without appreciable plastic deformation.
A property or condition of paper that causes failure of the material when it is deformed by bending. Paper is said to be brittle when a corner will not withstand two complete double folds.
Property of paper causing it to break while bending.
The property of a n O-ring causing cracking when it is deformed.
The ability to fracture easily with little or no deformation. Opposite of toughness.
