+= Specimen is resistant.............Swelling <3% or weight loss <0.5%. Break elongation not significantly altered.
/= Specimen has limited resistance...Swelling 3-8% or weight loss 0.5-5% and/or break elongation decreased by <50%
-= Specimen is not resistant.........Swelling > 8% or weight loss > 5% and/or break elongation decreased by >50%
