Abstract

The effect of temperature range from 298 K to 348 K and volume filler content Ñ„ on electrical properties of polyethylene PE filled with nickel Ni powders has been investigated. The volume electrical resistivity V ï² of such composites decreases suddenly by several orders of magnitude at a critical volume concentration (i.e. Ñ„c=14.27 Vol.%) ,whereas the dielectric constant ï¥ ï‚¢ and the A.C electrical conductivity AC ï³ of such composites increase suddenly at a critical volume concentration (i.e. Ñ„c=14.27 Vol.%).For volume filler content lower than percolation threshold Ñ„<Ñ„c the resistivity decreases with increasing temperature, whereas the dielectric constant and the A.C electrical conductivity of such composites increase indicating a semi-conducting behavior, where for Ñ„> Ñ„c there is increase in the value of their resistivity, and decrease in the value of their dielectric constant and the A.C electrical conductivity AC ï³
with increasing temperature indicating metallic-conduction.
