Conductive electroactive paints have been prepared by mixing polypyrrole colloids and an acrylic latex formulation in water. A range of colloid concentrations [20-80%(w/w)] were considered. Different substrates (Lead, Stainless Steel, Zincalume(R)) were dipped in the solution of paint and after drying the adhesive strength, conductivity and electroactivity of the paint coating were investigated. The films were found to be strongly adherent to all substrates, showed electrical conductivities similar to carbon filled paints and were electroactive. The results demonstrate that conductive electroactive coating can be applied in a versatile manner by using acrylic paints containing polypyrrole colloids as filler.
