Heat resistance: Melting point: Hook 220 °C, Loop 180°C.
Hook becoming soft at 180°C and begins to melt from 210-220°C.

Chill resistance: Unable to be used at temperatures below 30°C.
The lower the temperature, the stronger the tensile strength.

Humidity: In humidity over 90% RH, the tensile strength is somewhat reduced. However, it restores completely after drying.
