National Physical Laboratory


A range of small creep machines (maximum capacity of 50 kN) and environmental enclosures are available for the static fatigue testing of fibre tows, composite rods and laminates in aqueous and chemical environments.

Small portable units for long-term testing can be adapted for use with a wide range of test geometries and materials and facilitate combined mechanical loading and environmental conditions.

Precision equipment suitable for long-term creep of plastics, composites and adhesive joints under combined mechanical loading and environmental conditions are also available.
