    Electrically conductive polymer composites consisting of a nonconductive polymer matrix and conductive fillers, such as carbon black, are widely used. This contribution describes the specific electrical properties of polymer composite films for pulsed conditions in the microsecond (10-6 s) range. Investigation of an industrially available volume conductive polymer film (Carbostat) showed that the electrical properties of this material, which can be considered for electrodes in pulsed power applications, are quite different from the properties for DC conditions.
