Standard Absorbers

Convoluted Absorbers - AEC Series

3000 MHz - 30000 MHz

Broadband convoluted absorbers manufactured from lightweight urethane foam impregnated with a dielectric material. The front surface is rippled, providing a good match to the impinging wavefront. The convoluted material has properties desirable for applications requiring high reflectivity performance in conjunction with low forward scattering characteristics.
