German term or phrase: Druckverformungsrestwert
In a short article about seals. "Die Gehaeusedichtung wurde von X auf Y umgestellt, da der Druckverformungsrestwert wesentlich besser ist."

I can translate it directly, but does anyone know the correct technical expression, please?

AKA \"permanent set\"
\"Compression set after constant deformation denotes the deformation of a test specimen at a defined moment after unloading related to the deformation under load.
Now in accordance with DIN 53 501 the terms \"set\" and \"permanet set\" have been treated as synonyms. Hence, this standard uses the term \"compression set\" instead of the linguistically correct expression \'permanent set.\'\"
