The focus of this research is to increase the electrical conductivity and tensile strength of conductive polymer composites (CPCs) materials using Taguchi method. The efforts made is by optimizing the molding parameters, using two different size of conductive fillers, ie G25 (25 μm) and G13 (13 μm) in producing CPCs material. The molding parameters used are molding time and molding temperature. S/N ratio is use to obtain the optimum molding parameters, ie the larger is better. The results showed that Taguchi method L9 (23) succeeded in increasing the electrical conductivity and tensile strength of G25/G74/epoxy and G13/G74/epoxy composites. The highest electrical conductivity and tensile strength is on G13/G74/epoxy composites, ie 3.51 S/cm and 155.50 N/mm2 respectively.
