In this work, we apply the thermal pulse method to study the impact of process steps on the polarization of a piezofiber composite being integrated in a thermoplastic structure. Pre-poled samples are compared with samples which are poled after each integration step. The thermal wave method investigated previously shows a significant difference between these sample groups. The pyroelectric current is decreased by the embedding into thermoplastics. Contrarily, the differences between prepoling and re-poling are less verifiable when using the thermal pulse method.
