Co-authors HABR Jiří

This work examines the electrical properties of composite thermoplastic polymer matrix and carbon nanotubes. As basic matrix was used polypropylene, to which were added nanoparticles in the weight percentage ratio. As filler was used multi-wall carbon nanotubes. The nanocomposite was made by the injection molding machine Arburg. For evaluation of electrical properties was measured volume resistivity of the final composite materials with added nanofillers and without it. In this paper are also measured mechanical properties.
