Abstract. This paper deals with phase transitions corresponding to an energy which is the sum of a kinetic part of $p$-Laplacian type and a double well potential $h_0$ with suitable growth conditions. We prove that level sets of global solutions of $\Delta_p u=h_0'(u)$ with some uniform limit properties satisfy a mean curvature equation in a suitable viscosity sense. From this, we show that, if the above level sets approach uniformly a hypersurface, the latter has zero mean curvature.
