The present paper studied the thermal and mechanical properties of atmospheric pressure plasma jet (APPJ) treated multiwall carbon nanotubes/polypropylene/polylactic acid nanocomposite filaments. The experiments included tensile tests, differential scanning calorimeter (DSC), Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) experiments. DSC studies showed that there were a distinct shift in Tg and a relatively moderate change in Tm for different systems. The activation volumes of CNTs/PP/PLA nanocomposite filaments have been calculated to describe strain rate sensitive behavior of CNTs/PP/PLA nanocomposite filaments by following Eyring’s equation based on the tensile test results.
