The incorporation of carbon nanofibers into plasticized poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC) or poly(dimethylsiloxane) (PDMS) elastomers yields conductive nanocomposites that can be printed on fabrics to produce electronic textiles (e.g., strain sensors). Upon strain cycling, the nanofibers undergo reorientation and subsequent separation, causing the nanocomposites to exhibit strain-reversible piezoresistivity.
