AbstractAs ordinary known the ability of synthesizing electrical conducting polymer
composite is possible but with poor mechanical properties, for the solution of this
problem, we carried out this study in order to obtain both properties.
The PANI composite was prepared by using the prepared (EP/glass fiber)
composite as substrate for the deposition of the PANI. The chemical oxidative
method was adopted for polymerization of the aniline and simultaneously
protonated of PANI with a hydrochloric acid at a concentration of (1M).The
oxidation agent (FeCl3.6H2O) was used. The conductivity results showed that the
prepared composite lies within semiconductors region (1.7×10-3(S.cm-1)). The
Hall Effect measurement showed a p-type behavior for the prepared composite.
The creep and tensile behavior was studied and concluded that PANI Precipated
on the EP/glass fiber composite has no remarkable effect on the mechanical creep
and tensile behavior as compared with the untreated composites with PANI.But
have higher creep resistance and ultimate strength.
