Abstract: Abstract The large amplitude oscillatory shear test has been used to discriminate subtle differences in nonlinear viscoelasticity between two high density polyethyene blow molding resins with different processability. Structural network theory was used to explain the subtle differences in terms of entanglement kinetics with remarkable accuracy. The resin with better shape retention characteristics in programmed parison blow molding was found to have a higher kinetic rate constant for molecular re‐entanglement…
