Nanocellulose fibers with the average diameter below 100nm were successfully obtained by a high shear microfluidizer as shown in Figure 1. Their large surface area and nano-scale dimensions can lead to the emerging materials for reinforcements in polymer composites, differentiating from common polymer composites and providing the opportunity for nano-engineered materials that could have not achieved from conventional materials. In our previous work, the wet-laid process was found a good method to make nanocellulose/Polyamide 6 nanocomposites. In this study, we investigated the fabrication of composite material. Also, we compared the effects of the shape of matrix material. Melt-blown material. Low-viscosity polyamide 6 melt-blown nonwoven material showed the better performace as a matrix material.
