RE: Most conductive polymer

I'm no expert, but there are at least five types of conductive polymers,

piezoelectric polymers
polymers filled with conductive materials
pyrolyzed polymers
ion-permeable polymers
intrinsically conductive polymers.

Probably lots of chemicals suppliers offer filled polymers. For just the
intrinsically conductive polymers, I'm looking in a colleague's report at
a list of 200 companies, although the leaders appear to be the likes of
BASF, Neste Oy, Panipol Oy, and Ormecon Chemie.

To get a straight answer, you'll probbly have to be more specific in
communicating to your supplier the relative conductivities and strengths for
the application you have in mind.
