Thermoplastic multilayer composites of PC and SAN under tensile loading parallel to layers display crazing in SAN and shear banding in PC.

Thermoplastic multilayer composites of PC and SAN under tensile loading parallel to layers
display crazing in SAN and shear banding in PC. Interaction of these mechanisms leads
to a network-like pattern of plastic deformation prior to ultimate failure.
