Transparent sheets of epoxy resin reinforced with nylon-4,6 nanofibers are described. The 30-200 nm diameter fibers, obtained by electrospinning from formic acid solutions, are reported to provide significant improvement in strength and stiffness to the epoxy film. The Figure is a scanning electron microscopy image of the electrospun nanofibers.
