ARC Technologies, a Hexcel company, manufactures this thin, lightweight, broadband, multi-layer absorber. A cross linked, closed-cell foam gives the absorber excellent resistance to weather and chemicals. The gradient effect from the variation of carbon loadings on each of the three layers produces broadband performance. This microwave absorber can be die or laser cut to the desired sizes and configurations. It can be supplied in various thickness and combinations of materials to provide extended broadband capabilities.
