Due to the very large number of tests offered, descriptions of those most commonly requested have been gathered into the following groups:

ASTM D2990 – Tensile, Compressive and Flexural Creep and Creep-Rupture of Plastics

To request a quotation for any test email for a prompt reply

ASTM D2990 testing determines the tensile and compressive creep and creep-rupture of plastics under specified environmental conditions.

Data from creep and creep-rupture tests are necessary to predict the creep modulus and strength of materials under long-term loads and to predict dimensional changes that may occur as a result of such loads. The data can be used to compare other materials, in the design of fabricated parts, to characterize plastics for long-term performance under a constant load, and for specification purposes.
