The influence of multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) size including average diameter and length-diameter ratio on the melt flow behavior of polypropylene composites were investigated by means of a capillary rheometer in a temperature ranging from 190 to 230 °C and under apparent shear rates varying from 100 to 4000 s−1. It was found that the melt shear flow approximately obeyed the power law; the values of the melt shear viscosity increased with an increase of the filler weight fraction, while decreased with increasing the average diameter of the MWCNTs; the dependence of the melt shear viscosity on temperature roughly obeyed the Arrhenius equation; the relationship between the melt shear viscosity and the MWCNTs weight fraction was almost linear; the sensitivity of the melt apparent shear viscosity to the MWCNTs weight fraction was weakened with increasing the MWCNTs average diameter.
