Development of a Polyurethane Nanocomposite Reinforced with Carbon Nanotube Composite Nanofibers
Functionalized carbon nanotubes (CNTs) composite nanofibers with high melting point polyurethane (PUH) as matrix were fabricated by electrospinning method, which were later stacked alternately with low melting point polyurethane (PUL) films into composite nanofiber reinforced composites through a hot press treatment. The tensile modulus (30 wt.% composite nanofibers) reaches 54.3 MPa, 187% higher than that pure PUL film.
