From literature survey it is revealed that using both modified and unmodified CNTs as conductive filler, the electrical conduction behavior of PI composites at room temperature has been extensively studied [20-24], but the work, concerning the electrical conduction behavior in conductive PI composite at cryogenic condition, is remained a less focused area.
