The effect of ultraviolet (UV) irradiation on a multilayer film made of poly(ethylene terephthalate)/Polyamide 6/poly(ethylene terephthalate) was investigated by uniaxial tractions, UV-visible-NIR and Fourier transformed infra-red-attenuated total reflection spectroscopy, differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), and dynamic dielectric spectroscopy (DDS). The multilayer was exposed to ultraviolet radiations (filtered at 270 nm) for 7 days, in air. The complexity of the multilayer thermograms recorded by DSC and DDS has required the study of each film constituting the multilayer to assess each the contribution of each one of them. A deterioration in mechanical properties and a decrease in UV transmission for low wavelengths are observed. These evolutions seem to result to the photo-oxidation of the poly(ethylene terephthalate) film mainly localized at the exposed layer. This layer acts as a UV protection filter for the other layers. However, the DDS analyses show a plasticization effect of the primary mode in the Polyamide 6, which is evidence of photo-oxidation.
