This study presents mechanical and electrical characterization of glass fiber reinforced polymer (GFRP) filled with low specific single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) and BYK 8003 organic compounds. For this aim, DC conductivities of materials were calculated using high speed I–V measurements. The dielectric characteristics including dielectric constant, volume resistivity, loss tangent and dielectric loss factor were examined depending on frequency ranging from 50 Hz to 100 kHz. Also, tensile and flexural tests were fixed to investigate the effect of filling process on the mechanical behavior of GRFP. The surface morphology of the composite materials was analyzed with SEM and AFM measurements.
