Bismaleimide(BMI) structural foams employing carbon naotubes (CNTs) as functional fillers were prepared in this paper. Physical dispersion methods, such as mechanical mixing, ball milling and calendering process (three-roll milling), were adopted to disperse CNTs in the bismaleimide matrix to foam. The effects of the dispersion method on viscosity, bubble morphology were studied. The results indicated that, three-roll milling can more efficiently separate individual CNTs from the agglomerates compared with the other two methods. Because of more individual CNT to restraining the BMI chains, which exhibited the highest viscosity, the most irregular cell shape.
