Synonyms: standard, measure, touchstone

Meaning #2: the ideal in terms of which something can be judged
Synonym: standard

punrto de falla

En el que falla / termina la prueba

Cuando cualquier laboratorio, incluyendo a WIR, realiza una prueba de permanencia estimativa, debe definir cuándo una foto alcanza el “punto de falla”, es decir, el punto a partir del cual falla la prueba. Para tener una idea de lo estricto que es el criterio de falla de WIR, observa qué similares son el cuadrado que alcanzó el punto de falla y el cuadrado original, a la izquierda.*
