We investigate cosmological implications of an energy density contribution arising by elastic dark matter self-interactions. Its scaling behaviour shows that it can be the dominant energy contribution in the early universe. Constraints from primordial nucleosynthesis give an upper limit on the self-interaction strength which allows for the same strength as standard model strong inc Copyright owned by the author(s) under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike Licence.
