ABS-STB is a range of magnetically loaded thermoplastic materials, RF-properties are comparable to ABS-SRB. Lossy 3D shaped absorber parts find their application in high frequency microwave radio’s and Satcom systems. Many high volume applications such as microwave radio’s, satcom, broadcasting use magnetically loaded absorbers.
ABS-STB are thermoplastic absorbers which are developed to allow injection moulding as such we can produce in a cost effective manner 3D shaped parts in a high volume quantities. In addition to the typical use as RF-loads or surface current suppressors the material can also be used to produce absorber covers for installation and to protect area’s on printed circuit boards. When using ABS-STB as a cover the product has both functions, RF-absorber but also as shielding cap with a reasonable shielding level. ABS Technics produces ABS-STB in 2 different versions, a rigid version based on polypropylene and a flexible version based on thermoplastic elastomer.
