Over the past two decades, conductive polymer composites have been widely applied in the areas of electromagnetic/radio-frequency interference shielding, electrostatic discharge, conductive adhesives for die attachment in electronic packaging applications, and electroactive polymeric sensors in hand prostheses [1, 2], because of their unique electrical and mechanical properties, such as light weight, low cost, ease of processing, and corrosion resistance, in comparison with metals [3].

Conductive polymer composites exhibit some interesting features involving variations of resistivity with temperature [4, 5], mechanical stress [6, 7] or chemical environments [8, 9, 10, 11]. Conductive composites based on semicrystalline polymer show positive temperature coefficient (PTC) effect of resistivity around its melting point, which is quite attractive for the thermo-sensitive sensor applications. The PTC effect greatly depends on the properties of the matrix and the filler as well as on the...
