Abstract

The study is forced on electromagnetic (EM) response properties of Modified Bisphenol A Epoxy Resin widely used in aerospace applications, as a paint and a structural glue, enriched with a low concentration of the commercially available single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNT). The EM attenuation and reflection in Ka-band (26-37 GHz) provided by resin/SWCNT were measured as a function of the functional filler content (up to 1.5 wt.%) and the EM coating thickness. The constitutive parameters of resin/SWCNT composites in the microwave frequencies have been found to be strongly dependent of the nanocarbon percentage. We report on the effective EM shielding paint/coating on the basis of the epoxy resin with the EM response properties controllable by the coating thickness.
