Synopsis: 
The mechanical properties of Nylon 6 (N6), polymethyl-metacrylate and polyvinylidene-difluoride (PVDF) nanofibre-reinforced dental composite resins were evaluated in this study. Polymethylmetacrylate nanofibres dissolved in the resin, but N6 and PVDF nanofibres constituted fibre bridging across the matrix. All nanofibres enhanced the mechanical properties of dental composite resins compared to neat resin.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To investigate the mechanical properties of various mass fractions of Nylon 6 (N6), polymethyl-metacrylate (PMMA) and polyvinylidene-difluoride (PVDF) nanofibres reinforced bisphenol A-glycidyl methacrylate (Bis-GMA) and tri-ethylene glycol dimethacrylate (TEGDMA) based dental composite resins and to evaluate the penetration characteristics of the nanofibres into the resin.
