A high temperature creep measuring apparatus capable of operating over a wide range of temperatures, humidities and stress levels was developed. To assess its reliability, the apparatus was used to measure the creep behaviour of nylon6.6 tyre materials, under different temperature and humidity operating modes. At all operating conditions, cords exhibited instantaneous extensions on loading followed by steady creep over time with an eventual failure. The results obtained using the apparatus tallied well with results by other researchers, and this indicates that the apparatus can be used as a reliable measuring instrument.
