Spanish term or phrase: resistencia de materiales

English translation:durability of the materials, equipment durability, hardware durability
Explanation:
Take your pick! It kind of depends on what you are talking about, but I think durability is the most often used term when talking about things. Strength or resistence may refer to people as well. Also, durable has the connotation that we're talking about hardware, products, something people use.
