In the absence of segregation of nanodisperse graphite particles, obtained by electrolysis as a new filler of polyvinyl chloride (PVC), the viscoelastic phenomena dependent on the structural changes of a composite are investigated. The shear modulus and the volume compressibility caused by deviations of elements of the structure from the quasi-equilibrium state under the action of ultrasonic vibrations (ω = 0.4·106 0.4 · 10 s–1) are calculated at filler concentrations 0 ≤ φ ≤ 10.0 vol.% and temperatures 298 K ≤ T ≤ (Tg + 10) K. It is shown that the volume density of internal energy depends on the expectation time for the transition of structural elements through the energy barrier, the dynamic viscosity of the material, and temperature. The results of calculations serve as the basis for producing PVC systems with controllable of properties.
