Interfacial mechanical properties of carbon/glass hybrid thermoplastic epoxy composite rods play a crucial role in the determination of the composite strength and fracture behavior. In this study, push-out and push-back tests using three hybrid rods with different carbon/glass ratios were performed to investigate the interfacial shear strength and fracture mechanism. Debonding occurred at the interface between the glass fiber bundles and thermoplastic epoxy. After the onset of debonding, sinusoidal behavior during sliding was observed in the load displacement curve, which was identical with the interface roughness in terms of wavelength. Debonding and sliding strength were considered to be related to the interfacial bonding region between the carbon fiber bundle core and surrounding braided glass fiber bundles.
