Electrospinning has proven to be a very effective method for producing polymer nanofibers. However, the mechanical properties of electrospun polymer nanofibers can be quite different from textile fibers made from the same polymer since the polymer molecules are not optimally aligned in electrospun nanofibers. Many reports have shown that the tensile strength of electrospun mats of non-aligned nanofibers is lower than 40 MPa. Stretching can be an effective method for making high-performance… CONTINUE READING
