Making your products stronger, lighter and more competitive
For radomes, the material solution needs to be light and strong, cope well with weather and operational conditions, and provide good transparency. It also needs to be formable to create a spherical or double-curved shape.
A sandwich radome made with Diab’s core material is a strong, lightweight solution with good impact behavior and excellent resistance to harsh weather conditions. Combined with the additional benefits of low and even dielectric constant as well as loss factor of the foam, especially in the high-frequency region, these characteristics make our core materials suitable for sea, air and land-based equipment.
Antennas with Diab core sandwich solutions are exceptionally stiff and strong. Their light weight makes handling easy, and in larger antennas it helps minimize supporting structures. Again, a Diab core sandwich stands out with excellent performance in harsh weather conditions.
In addition to our products, Diab also offers extensive technical expertise, structural engineering services and applications training.
AvL Technologies produces high-performance mobile satellite antennas for numerous applications using Diab’s Divinycell composite materials.
Placed in remote areas with limited access, the five new telescope sites built by KASI will be protected by lightweight, maintenance-free domes made of Divinycell core material and manufactured by Deco Composites.
Below are the core materials we recommend for radomes & antenna applications. To quickly find what is best suited for your project, use our Core Selection Guide.
