Fast Response Time
Weighing Carbon Black
Increased Mixing Time
Using Katjen Carbon Black
Increased Surface area: 1400 m2/g
Typical Carbon Black is 100-500 m2/g
Moving to a Silcone Rubber

Purchasing A Dispersion Blade
Placing Samples Under Hot Press to Cure
Four-point resistance measurements eliminate errors due to changing contact resistance.
Strain vs. Time Voltage Output
Conduction in the composite cannot be explained by tunneling, but can be modeled by Mean Field Theory.
