Creep rupture is cracking within a plastic component that occurs as a response to stress that occurs through disentanglement of the polymer chains by overcoming intermolecular forces, such as Van der Waal's forces and hydrogen bonding, between the polymer chains.
As the profile becomes even thinner and transitions into the equilibrium thin-film region, or the evaporative precursor film region, it approaches a limit where the intermolecular attraction of the liquid molecules to the solid surface can negate the tendency of these molecules to evaporate, even at elevated temperatures.
This indicates the complex formation and intermolecular weak association which may be due to hydrogen bonding.
