When placed within a cavity Eccosorb GDS has proven to be very effective at dampening resonances due to the absorbers high permittivity and permeability.
When bonded to a metal surface Eccosorb GDS will significantly reduce the reflectivity of metal objects or structures due to the flow of microwave currents on that surface.
It can be applied to antenna elements, microwave dishes, the inner or outer surfaces of waveguides for isolation, attenuation or modification of radiating patterns.
When applied to side or even rear surfaces of certain objects Eccosorb GDS will cause a significant reduction in “head on” reflectivity or backscattering.
Although not intended as a specular absorber, it will reduce metal plate reflectivity by a few dB.
Eccosorb GDS is a thin, flexible, high-loss, magnetically loaded, electrically non-conductive silicone rubber sheet. It is designed for the frequency range from 6 GHz and above. The material is impervious to moisture and can be subjected to high altitudes, with no adverse effects. Being a silicone based absorber, it has low outgassing properties for space applications.
