How to refer to the properties of a product!!!

With regard to 'properties' obviously in the sense of characteristics, quality/qualities, and/or attributes.

The answers to these questions may be obvious to everybody else.

May one use the expression 'product properties' to refer to the properties of a product?

May one refer to the properties of a product by using a possessive pronoun, singular or plural as appropriate, i.e. 'its properties' or 'their properties'.
