Electrospun nanofibers can be used in the reinforcement of polymers. Mechanical interlocking among the nanofibers is easily achieved as electrospun nanofiber mats have a large specific surface area and an irregular pore structure. For example, addition of a thin electrospun nanofiber mat of Nylon 4, 6 to epoxy showed transparency to visible light. There was a significant increase in the stiffness and strength compared with the pure epoxy film (Bergshoef and Vancso, 1999). 5 Electrospun Nanofibers Conclusion and future trends Over the past few years, there has been a tremendous growth in the fabrication techniques for nanofibrous materials because of their unique features and many useful applications.
