A formal asymptotic scheme is used to determine the leading order behavior of a certain singularly perturbed integrodifferential equation which models the process of stretching a polymer filament. The inner solution describes the process during a boundary layer in time which occurs at the onset of elastic recovery. The outer solution describes the long term behavior of the elastic recovery, and a bound on the ultimate recovery is determined.
