The mathematical treatment of evolutionary non-associative elasto-plasticity is still in its infancy. In particular, all existence results thus far rely on a spatially mollified stress admissibility constraint. Further, the evolution is formulated in a rescaled time from which it is very difficult to infer any useful information on the "real" time evolution. We propose a causal spatio-temporal mollification of the stress admissibility constraint that, while no more far-fetched than a purely spatial one, produces a more elegant and complete evolution for such models, and this in the "real" time variable.
