I have not study the Type XXIII Schnorchel yet however, the anti-radar materials used on the Schnorchel head and neck by the German Kriegsmarine during World War II would be call Tarnmatte.

Wesch-type anti-radar coating ‘Tarnmatte’ was designed to be effective against the H2S radar. It was made from 2 cm thick sheets of a synthetic rubber called Buna that contained iron oxid powder. It was very flexible and had a waffle-like surface. Normally only applied to the curved structure.
