This here says that the range of the normalised values are 120 to 38, so to get a percentage, you have to map 38-120 to 0-100. However, if we look at smartctl...

So, it seems that 38 is the minimum it can reach, 50 is the failing threshold, and 120 is the maximum. Doing some terrible math, that comes out at ~15% integrity being 'failure'.
