YIELD POINT Y001
The point where the stress on the metal causes it to move and pass from the elastic range, through the yield point, to the plastic range where it loses its memory.
Every metal has a yield point where this loss of memory occurs.
Here are the yield points for a few of the common materials we use in mechanical seals. As you would expect, the yield point of a metal changes with its temperature.
