The current research is devoted to the studying of multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNT) dispersion and its influence on the rheological properties of cement pastes. The pH and electrical conductivity test, zeta potential measurements, particle size analysis were performed for characterization of MWCNT dispersion. The MWCNT dispersion were tested during 1 month and presented the decrease of pH level from 8.89 to 8.02, increase of electrical conductivity from 2.00 to 2.75 mS/cm. The particle size analysis did not reveal the significant changes during 1 month of storage. The rheological test of nanomodified cement pastes were performed for concentration of MWCNT dispersion in the range from 0 to 0.5% by weight of cement. The decrease of yield stress by 30.7% and increase of plastic viscosity by 29.6% were obtained for cement paste modified by MWCNT dispersion in dosage of 0.25% by weight of cement. The changes in flow behaviour were established for cement pastes tested in 5 min after mixing and were not observed for cement pastes tested after 120 min of mixing.
