It is shown that the structure stability and performance properties of the disperse-filled polymers can be analyzed using the results of the macrostructure image processing on the basis of a texture approach and multifractal formalism. Parameters are proposed that allow to analyze the performance of polymers at high temperatures. The electric conductivity stability while heated is evaluated by comparing the proposed structure parameters of the examined materials that respond to the discrete movements of the filler.
