The Black G10 fibreglass is OK as electrical insulation so does not contain carbon.

A quick RF test for plastics is to put a bit in the microwave (put a glass of water in there too but not close to the plastic to provide a "load" and prevent damage) and run it for a bit.

If the plastic gets hot it's lossy at RF.

Is this the same stuff, if so, the ad lists the manufacturer as SAS whoever that may be.

Certainly looks the same stuff so I spoke to their sales department today. They only have the same 100mm wide strips which they purchase from SAS International in Reading Berkshire who are a big player in the fitting out of prestige buildings. From the SAS website it does not look like they actually manufacture the raw materials but they are major wholesalers and supply a lot of the partitioning companies.

My search goes on.....
