Product Family Description

  • Diffusive, Lambertian, or Specular Reflectance
  • Extremely Wide Band Performance from the UV to IR
  • Standard, Low Outgassing, and No Adhesive Options
  • Die Cut Labels and Larger Rolls Available

Acktar Light Absorbent Foil and Film is used to eliminate light reflectance in applications where the direct coating of parts is not practical, including optical packaging, laser devices and platforms, IR systems, or passive thermal control. Acktar Light Absorbent Foil and Film features high emissivity with low reflectance, low outgassing, excellent biocompatibility, a broad operating temperature range, and compatibility with class 1 cleanrooms. Acktar Light Absorbent Foil and Film is available in pre-cut patterns or as large sheets for custom patterns.

Acktar Light Absorbent Foil and Film is offered in Metal Velvet™ (diffusive coating on aluminum), Spectral Black™ (semi-specular coating on aluminum), MaxiBlack™ (diffusive coating on polyimide), or Lambertian Black™ (diffusive coating on stainless steel). Metal Velvet offers superior light absorption performance while Spectral Black is more durable, and Lambertian Black performs better at grazing angles. Maxiblack, in addition to being durable and flexible, is nonconductive and can be used in applications that require light absorbing materials with no electrical conductivity.

Note: Metal Velvet has low resistance to abrasion and all surface contact should be avoided without proper equipment.
