Electric Properties of Polymers

Some of the more important dielectric properties are dielectric loss, loss factor, dielectric constant (or specific inductive capacity), dc conductivity, ac conductivity, and electric breakdown strength. The term dielectric behavior usually refers to the variation of these properties within materials as a function of frequency, composition, voltage, pressure, and temperature.
