The strain-dependence of the elastic and the anelastic behavior of filled elastomers is discussed in the light of recent experiments on carbon-black filled rubber as well as on sodium-chloride filled polyurethane. The latter experiments suggest that the apparent creep of filled elastomers is the manifestation of the gradual change of the elastic moduli resulting from the loss with strain of effective filler-matrix interaction, rather than a truly visco-elastic phenomenon.
