In this paper, the influence of polymeric filler with different glass transition temperature (T g) on the poling behavior and thermal stability of 1-3 piezoelectric composites were investigated, with emphasis on the relationship between T g and temperature dependent properties. The results revealed that high poling temperature improves the piezoelectric coefficient by nearly 12% for composites filled with epoxy (Epotek301, T g above room temperature). On the contrary, high temperature gives a negative impact on the poling of composites filled with rubber (Ke45W, T g below room temperature). In addition, it was found that rubber-filled composites possess better temperature stability between room temperature to140 °C, including dielectric and electromechanical properties, compared with epoxy-filled composites.
