We have prepared composite materials with a mixture of carbonyl iron (CI) and manganese-zinc ferrite (MnZn) as filler and polyvinylchloride (PVC) as polymer matrix, and then electromagnetic wave absorption properties of CI/MnZn/PVC composites have been studied in the frequency range from 10 MHz to 6.5 GHz. Increasing carbonyl iron loading (to the detriment of MnZn ferrite) results in the rise of permeability and magnetic resonance loss (especially in GHz frequency range) which leads to the shift of absorption peak towards lower frequency and to the decrease of matching thickness. On the contrary, increasing MnZn ferrite loading (to the detriment of carbonyl iron) results in higher absorption bandwidth. The obtained results indicate that the prepared flexible composites may be useful as thin and/or wideband microwave absorbers.
