Creep and Stress Rupture TestinG

creep-stress-rupture-crop-300Creep testing provides information about the performance of a material under an applied load, often at elevated temperatures.  Stress rupture testing is similar to creep, but with higher stresses as samples are always run until failure.  

These tests are designed to evaluate the ability of a part or material to safely hold a load and are critical to manufacturers in a wide range of industries including aerospace and power generation among others.

IMR Test Labs' facilities in the US and Asia offer creep and stress rupture testing on metallic materials. We can run creep samples at temperatures up to 1500ºF and stress rupture samples to 2100ºF, with controlled relative humidity from 40% to 70%. Our frames loads have capacity of up to 12,000 lbs.  

All specimens are single-point machined within IMR and low-stress grind is available. We have full digital temperature and strain data logging to ensure you get accurate, measurable results.
