The interstage annealing of sheet-metal laminates is studied. A method of predicting the stretch-formability, as measured by the maximum possible uniform strain in simple tension, is proposed. Practical composite systems of potential commercial interest are examined. It is suggested that for certain sheet-metal laminates improved stretch-formability can be achieved as a consequence of a low-temperature, low-cost heat-treatment.
