The effect of the orientation of carbon fillers with different aspect ratios on the resistivity and morphology of conductive polymer composites (CPCs) based on polypropylene was investigated in this study. Multiwall carbon nanotubes (MWNTs) and carbon black (CB) were used as conductive fillers. The CPCs were made by melt compounding, hot pressing, and solid-state drawing. The alignment of the filler was observed after solid-state drawing. The resistivity of the composites increased with the draw ratio at relatively low carbon filler loadings (
