• AC conductivity changes due to γ radiation in a composite depend on the CB contents.
• Stability of the AC conductivity at elevated temperature depends on the CB contents.
• Gamma radiation reduces NTC behavior of AC conductivity in the LDPE+CB composite.
Electrical AC conductivity of semiconducting low-density polyethylene (LDPE)–carbon black (CB) composites has been studied in the frequency range between 24 Hz and 75 kHz and the temperature range from 295 to 355 K. The composites were gamma irradiated at room temperature to different absorbed doses up to 300 kGy. The effects of gamma irradiation on the AC conductivity at room temperature and the conductive temperature coefficients (CTC) were observed. It was found that the effect of gamma irradiation on the stability of AC conductivity at elevated temperature (355 K) is dependent on the carbon black content and the gamma irradiation dose.
