Strain induced crystallization in PET has been studied extensively under simple, constant strain, loading conditions. By implementing the addition of a hold into the deformation process PET will have the additional needed time to crystallize. Plane strain and uniaxial compression tests on small PET specimens will be utilized to gain a better understanding of the crystallization characteristics throughout the deformation process.
