Cover: The cover picture shows that layer-multiplying coextrusion uses forced-assembly to create films with thousands of alternating nanolayers of two polymers. As the layer thickness becomes comparable to the dimension of interfacial mixing, the constituent layers lose their integrity and the entire film becomes a new interphase material.
