If the static disorder in a system is increased the conductivity and the electron mean free path decreases to the limit where it reaches the Ioffe-Regal criterion. In this paper experimental results are presented which show that dynamic disorder (produced by electronphonon interaction) can produce similar effects as static disorder. In certain metallic glasses it has been found that when the resistivity as a function of temperature reaches a critical value (almost equal to the maximum metallic resistivity value) the TCR changes from positive to negative values.
