ASTM D2990-17

Standard Test Methods for Tensile, Compressive, and Flexural Creep and Creep-Rupture of Plastics

1.1 These test methods cover the determination of tensile and compressive creep and creep-rupture of plastics under specified environmental conditions (see 3.2).

1.2 In these test methods three-point loading, as described in Test Methods D790, is used for measurement of creep in flexure. However, four-point loading using the equipment and principles described in D6272 is also permitted as an option.

1.3 For measurements of creep-rupture, tension is the preferred stress mode because for some ductile plastics rupture does not occur in flexure or compression.

1.4 Test data obtained by these test methods are relevant and appropriate for use in engineering design.

1.5 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values in parentheses are for information only.

1.6 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. A specific warning statement is given in 6.8.2.
