Special Absorbers

Block foam absorber (single doping, layered or laminated) and Rubber absorber matting with rubber cones (for outdoor use).


The principal of this type of absorber is to mimic free space by ‘progressive impedance’ that is, to progressively absorb the radio wave/microwave through a resistive structure having a progressive shape, this converts the electromagnetic energy to heat energy.

Block foam absorber (single doping)

The available thicknesses are:

  1. 25mm thick (part No GLD - block 25)
  2. 50mm thick (part No GLD - block 50)
  3. 75mm thick (part No GLD – block 75)

Block foam absorber (layered or laminated)

Block foam absorbers use graded doping, the available thicknesses are:

  1. 25mm thick, performance >-17dB above 5GHz (part No GLD-FL-25)
  2. 50mm thick, performance >-17dB above 2.5GHz (part No GLD-FL-50)
  3. 100mm thick, performance >17dB above 1.2GHz (part No GLD-FL-100)
