The effect of molding conditions on the mechanical properties of polycaprolactam (nylon-6) is examined, together with the variation in these properties with time. The experimental data lead to the conclusion that the mechanical properties of polycaprolactam depend on the degree of interaction between two processes: relaxation of the internal residual stresses and the ordering of the structure.
