The effect of epoxy modified by 0.05 wt. % of CNTs on electrical properties of woven fiberglass/epoxy composite laminate was examined. The electrical resistance was measured using 4-point probe method and LCR-meter during cyclic tensile and fatigue test. Microstructural analysis using field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM) was carried out. Based on the experimental data, the increase in load is accompanied by growth in electrical resistance. The change in resistance after 20 cycles was up to 3 %. During fatigue test, the change in resistance was considerable and made up to 25 % in cracking zone of the sample and over 110 % at the failure mode.
