Abstract

This paper presents complementary data corresponding to char-
acterization tests done for our research article entitled “Uniaxially
aligned electrospun fibers for advanced nanocomposites based on
a model PVOH-epoxysystem”. Poly(vinyl
alcohol) and epoxy resin were selected as a model system and the
effect of electrospun fiber loading on polymer properties was
examined in conjunction with two manufacturing methods. A
novel electrospinning technology for production of uniaxially
aligned nanofiber arrays was used. A conventional wet lay-up
fabrication method is compared against a novel, hybrid electro-
spinning–electrospraying approach.The structure and thermo-
mechanical properties of resulting composite materials were
examined using scanning electron microscopy, dynamic mechanical thermal analysis, and Fourier transform infra-red spectroscopy.
