Are there any materials (not necessarily polymers) that have a low melting point AND low creep?

Are there any materials (not necessarily polymers) that have a low melting point AND low creep?

(OP)
I'm looking for a material that melts lower than 90C but has less than 3% creep per year at 1Mpa and 45C. It should also have a tensile strength of at least 15Mpa at 40C

Does anything like that exist? I know Polycaprolactone has a very low melting point, but what about creep resistance?

I think your best bet with a polymer system is to make sure it's highly filled with glass fiber which will dramatically reduce creep.
