Spacecraft Thermal Control Materials
Are tapes and films that have controlled absorptance/emittance properties to passively control the temperature of a spacecraft. Multiple coatings on FEP Teflon, Kapton and Mylar are used.
Low Observable Materials
Have controlled electrical resistance properties or controlled infrared reflectance/absorptance properties and sometimes have specific patterns laser etched into the coatings. Applications are mainly "stealth" aircraft.
Include a variety of materials ranging from ultra thin films used in transducers, microphones and headphones to more standard films used in circuits, flexswitches, displays, heaters and antennas. These films are coated on one or two sides with aluminum, copper, gold, indium tin oxide or other metals and alloys.
