Point

A distinct proposition or Question of Law arising or propounded in a case. In the case of shares of stock, a point means $1. In the case of bonds a point means $10, since a bond is quoted as a percentage of $1,000. In the case of market averages, the word point means merely that and no more. If, for example, the Dow-Jones Industrial Average rises from 8,349.25 to 8,350.25, it has risen a point. A point in this average, however, is not equivalent to $1.

With respect to the home mortgage finance industry, a fee or charge of one percent of the principal of the loan that is collected by the lender at the time the loan is made and is in addition to the constant long-term stated interest rate on the face of the loan.

The strength at the plastic yield point was also related to the dislocation density; with the model size increasing, the dislocation density increased and the yield strength decreased.
One can notice that small approximation differences (as is the case with Herschel-Bulkley curve) amount to large estimation differences in terms of viscosity especially prior to the yield point.

Depending on the type of test (tension, compression or shear), the temperature and the load speed, Santoprene TPV grades can be divided into two categories, including: the "rubber-like" material type (exhibiting a curve with a positive slope until rupture) and the "yield" material type (exhibiting a yield point and a negative slope).
Dispers 685 is especially suitable for some organic pigments, such as yellow, red and blue and produces outstanding development of color strength, improved rheology, lower yield point and strong reduction of mill base viscosity allowing for high pigment loading.
