This week, we welcome Dr. Robert Doneker of Tangitek, LLC, a technology start-up located in Portland, Oregon USA. They develop carbon fiber composites for the aerospace, electronics, defense, communications and consumer products industries.
On this episode, we'll be discussing their MF-RAMTM, a lightweight thin electromagnetic absorbing flocked carbon fiber material used for EMI/RFI suppression in electronics and as radar absorbing materials.
As wireless communication devices and automation become more common, high-performance shielding materials that are lightweight, thin and durable are needed to manage growing EMI. New materials are needed to facilitate the development of new mobile, wearable, wireless communication devices, and products in the aerospace, automotive and consumer industries.
TangiTek has developed lightweight, magnetically loaded, flocked carbon fiber composites as microwave absorbers in the 300 MHz to 30 GHz frequency range. These CF composite absorbers will have immediate use in aerospace industries where even marginal weight savings has the potential to provide a large payback.
TangiTek is one of twelve companies that won the (ASA(ALT)) Army xTechSearch Phase III challenge for its technology.
