SAT single layer foam RF absorber can be used to lower the Q of cavities in RF amplifiers, oscillators, microwave devices; attenuate surface currents on radiating objects and absorb stray RF energy; and isolate components and plug areas of RF leakage.

  • Basic composition : Carbon loaded, polyurethane, single layer sheet absorber
  • Features : Variable thickness, lightweight, flexible, easily cut, high loss
  • Fire Retardancy : NRL report 8093 I, II, and III
  • Working temperature : -50°C (-85°F) to +80°C (+176°F)
  • Thickness : Standard thicknesses are 3 mm 6 mm and 9 mm.
  • Base size : Standard base size is 500 mm x 500 mm
  • Color : Light blue for the surface with a black back
  • Attenuation  Dependant on carbon loading (refer table below)
  • Configurations : SAT-xxmm-yydB zz:
    xx = material thickness in mm
    yy = insertion loss dB/cm at 10 GHz
    zz = “PSA” adhesive or “WP” weatherproofing applied
  • Installation : Generally neoprene contact adhesive is recommended for installation.
