The conditions of formation and properties of hybrid organic-inorganic composites based on epoxy polymer matrix and a mixture of magnetic and polymeric fillers are studied. Based on the study of physicochemical properties of fillers and composites, it was found that the introduction of a dispersion of magnetite modified with polymer shells and polyaniline doped with toluene sulfonic acid in the thermosetting epoxy composition in the amount of 2-6 wt.% provides the ability of composites to significant absorption and low reflection of IR and microwave range. It was found that the optimal content of the composition corresponds to the best mechanical properties of the obtained coatings, in particular, high microhardness. This makes it possible to use the proposed composition to obtain on its basis composite films and coatings for anti-radar purposes, which reduce the intensity of microwave radiation acting on the object and at the same time act as protective coatings on the surface of metals.
