MAJRabsorber™ Innovation Changes RF Absorber Expectations

Every once in awhile true innovation transforms an industry.  Consider what the cloud has meant for business as it brought about data storage, access and co-worker collaboration.  Look at how the Internet of Things is frontiering cashierless shopping. Such champions in innovation will not only make the industry and applications they integrate with faster, easier or better, they change the way we think about what’s possible.  Over time these disruptors soon become the new industry standard and we wonder how we lived without them before their introduction. For the EMI/RFI shielding industry, this transformative shift is now taking place in RF absorber materials with MAJR Products’ new MAJRabsorber™.

MAJRabsorber™’s Innovative layered Construction

New rf absorber from MAJR Products for EMI shielding.MAJRabsorber™ not only absorbs and dissipates but reflects stray noise. Within frequencies of 1 – 18 GHz it offers attenuation levels which greatly surpass other absorber materials on the market and, in fact, within many frequencies attenuation is more than doubled.  It achieves its effectiveness because of its “layered” construction. It has a flexible, inner conductive layer that is placed between two non-conductive layers, allowing MAJRabsorber™ to reflect stray signals radiated emissions and affiliated currents gathered by the electromagnetically reflective inner layer back through the non-conductive RF absorbing outer layers.  This causes stray noise to reflect, much like a racquetball’s energy is quickly dissipated as it bounces from one wall to another and therefore drops to the floor.  

But it is not just its attenuation ability that brings accolades to this new product. The very fabrication process that gives MAJRabsorber™ those high levels of attenuation also allow it to be useful in a number of difficult applications.

Consider the possibilities with MAJRabsorber™…

  • Thin, flexible, cost effective RF AbsorberBecause of the non-conductive outer layers, MAJRabsorber™ can be placed between close circuits without fear of shorting out sensitive components while helping isolate them..
  • The multi-layered approach also makes this material ultra-tough while remaining extremely flexible, which lends itself well to the production process for oddly shaped hardened enclosures, even remaining tear resistant for those difficult spaces during handling and transport.
  • With one of the many supply options being roll form, MAJRabsorber™ is not only cost competitive but it allows for quick turn-around times when cutting prototypes and even large production runs. This becomes a game changer for strict deadlines and tight budgets.
  • And for those enclosures which must stand up to challenging environments, engineers will be happy to note that MAJRabsorber™ is corrosion resistant and works well under both ends of the extreme temperature spectrum.

Tomorrow’s innovation for today’s EMI/RFI shielding needs:  That’s been MAJR Products’ mantra for 25 years. Look for MAJRabsorber™ in roll form (and quickly produced custom die-cuts), strips, sheets and pads in various shapes with no pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA) or PSA applied to one or both sides.  You’ll soon see it in the most progressive military or civilian electronic engineering programs, which are hopefully your own.
