The surface-deformation characteristics of uniaxially drawn poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PET) film were successfully evaluated with multiline scratch tests using scanning probe microscopy (SPM) on a nanometer scale. The PET film was prepared by compression molding from the melt, followed by quenching in ice water. The obtained amorphous film was drawn… CONTINUE READING
