ASTM C 1465 (C-1465) determines the slow crack growth (SCG) parameters of advanced ceramics by using constant stress-rate flexural testing in which flexural strength is determined as a function of applied stress rate in a given environment at elevated temperatures.

The test machine for ASTM C1465 meets the minimum capability of applying at least four test rates with at least three orders of magnitude, ranging from 10^−1 to 10^−2 N/s for load-control mode, and from 10^−7 to 10^−4 m/s for displacement-control mode. By means of our testing expertise and modular product design, we will help find the solution that is right for you.
