Creep

Creep describes a time and temperature dependent plastic deformation under a constant force. When a constant force is applied to a rubber compound, the initial deformation obtained due to the application of the force is not fixed. The deformation will increase with time. Creep takes place!

Creep-Behavior

Creep behavior is the term for describing the creep processes taking place in different materials.

Depicted in the figure are the characteristics of a high-stress and low-stress creep curve. The figure shows creep over time.

Relaxation, creep and creep recovery processes can be measured with the NETZSCH DMA EPLEXOR® and DMA 242 Artemis®.
