Material Characteristics

  • ECCOSORB® LS is the most widely known, used, and recommended urethane foam sheet product.
  • High loss, low density, and very flexible
  • ECCOSORB® LS obtains it's microwave properties via a carbon loading system and is therefore, electrically conductive
  • Very low cost solution for many applications over the thinner, more expensive rubber absorbers
  • Not weatherproof but can be supplied with a weather resistant CERSEAL coating, see Availability below
  • If UL-94-HF-1 fire retardancy is a requirement, see ECCOSORB® QR
  • Can be easily cut with a knife, scissors, or die

Applications

  • ECCOSORB® LS is used to lower cavity Q's in RF amplifiers, oscillators, cabinets containing microwave devices, computer housings, LNB's, and isolation of antennas by insertion loss
  • ECCOSORB® LS is also used to reduce surface currents on radiating elements and outer ground-plane type surfaces.
  • Reflectivity of an object (metal or otherwise) can be reduced somewhat by applying one or more layers of ECCOSORB® LS to its surface
