Results of this study, in which shielding efficiencies are measured for a number of blends containing various conductive fillers including intrinsically conductive polymers, are reported. It is shown that a very high level of shielding performance can be achieved by use of intrinsically conductive polymers in thermoplastic blends and that the most reliable measure of this performance is obtained from far‐field shielding measurements. However, near‐field measurements provide a useful method for comparing the relative shielding effectiveness of different samples. A PVC blend containing nearly uniformly dispersed intrinsically conductive polymer proved to be the best performing sample.
