Electrically conductive coatings are mainly required for static charge dissipation and electromagnetic/radio frequency interference (EMI/RFI) shielding. Electrically conductive coatings are prepared by the incorporation of the metallic pigments/graphite onto the binder. In the present investigation graphite is used as the conductive filler and epoxy polymer as binder. Optimization of the solid content and pigment volume concentration (PVC) of the coating is done by varying the composition of the binder and pigment volume. To get the minimum resistivity value offered by the coating. The resistivity of the coating was measured by means of the four-probe resistivity method. The effect of inclusion of carbon black as additional pigment is also studied. The results are presented and discussed in this paper.
