A process for manufacturing polymer carbon nanotube (CNT) based composite yarns is reported. The aligned CNT structure was combined with a polymer resin and, after being stressed through the spinning process, the resin was cured and polymerized, with the CNT structure acting as reinforcement in the composite yarn. The present method obviates the need of special and complex treatments to align and disperse CNTs in a polymer matrix. The process allows development of polymer/CNT based composite yarns with different mechanical properties suitable for a range of applications by using various resins.
