Abstract: Abstract The memory effect of shear history was studied with poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PET) prepared under different shear conditions of 11.7 to 1168 s−1 in a capillary rheometer. The shear history of PET resin led to a memory effect, which in turn affected the crystallization kinetics. The crystallization rate increased with increasing shear rate. Double peaks of heating crystallization exotherms and a low value of Avrami exponent appeared at low shear rates, which was attributed to the existence of crys…
