What would be stronger - a polymer that is crystalline or a polymer that has lots of cross-links?

Thanks.

They would be equally strong, although this would depend on chain length. Cross links effectively make a polymer more crystalline, as they force polymer chains together as they would be naturally in a crystalline polymer.
