Özet

Radar absorption material ( RAM); absorbs a portion of electromagnetic waves transmitted by radar and make it difficult to be detected by radar. In this study, paint properties, binder type and thickness of paint, impact on the iron based RAM were investigated. The aim of this study is to produce high temperature resistant paint which also counted as RAM in international standards. Both temperature resistant and absorption capacity were examined to determine most suitable binder for iron based RAM paint. Because of high temperature resistance most suitable binder was chosen as silicon based binder. Produced paint absorbs - 16 dB at 18-40 frequency bands as well as resistant to 570 degrees C, so it was evaluated as high temperature resistant RAM. According to the analysis results; appropriate paint thickness should be chosen according to the application area.
