The paper proposes the method of determining the relaxation constants of the material included in the nonlinear equation of Maxwell-Gurevich. We performed the processing of relaxation curves of recycled polyvinylchloride (PVC) at different temperatures and investigated the effect of temperature on the value of the relaxation parameters. For each parameter, we have chosen empirical formula describing its dependence on temperature.
Key words: recycled polyvinylchloride / relaxation / Maxwell-Gurevich law / high elasticity modulus / relaxation viscosity / high elastic deformations
