Ir-Nb-Pt-Al quaternary alloys had exhibited suitable microstructure for high-temperature usage in the previous study. In this work, investigations were made of the mechanical properties of these quaternary alloys. Compression tests at 1200 °C were carried out for five samples, and compression creep test at 1400 °C under 100 MPa was conducted for one sample. These alloys showed high strength and good creep resistance.
