Summary Polyethyleneterephtalate–polypyrrole (PET–PPy) textile complexes incorporating different anionic dopants have been heat treated at 60 °C, 80 °C, 105 °C, 125 °C and 150 °C to investigate effects of short-term heating on conductivity and stability. In most cases heat treatments below 80 °C did not significantly change the final resistance of the conducting textiles. Only the anionic dye-dopant Indigo Carmine acted in a heat-stabilizing manner during treatment at 150 °C, while all samples containing other anionic dopant underwent some degradation. A treatment temperature of 125 °C was the most effective for lowering the final resistance, with sulphonic group containing dopants being particularly effective in improving conductivity and stability. A 29% decrease in the final resistance of a PET–PPy/para-toluene-2-sulphonic acid (pTSA) sample was achievable after 900 s at 125 °C.
