SLA resin property questions

Hi All,

I have two questions for you:

1) Are there any real-world numbers that relate the mechanical properties of
SLA parts to different types of plastics?
         i.e. SLA parts have 40% tensile strength of nylon. HIPS has a
strength factor of 2.5 of SLA.

2) What are the dielectric properties of SLA parts?

I am mostly concerned with the 5170 resin, but information of any sort will

Thank You in advance and I will post the compiled answers.
