Abstract

The relationship between the crystallisation behaviour and physical ageing history of poly(ethylene terephthalate) is reported. It is shown that short term ageing can enhance the subsequent rate of crystallisation, but longer ageing times can retard the crystallisation process. It is suggested that physical ageing favours the formation of ordered domains.
