We report on the scattering parameters and Johnson noise emission of low-pass stripline filters employing a magnetically loaded silicone dielectric down to 25 mK. The transmission characteristic of a device with f-3 dB=1.3 GHz remains essentially unchanged upon cooling. Another device with f-3 dB=0.4 GHz, measured in its stopband, exhibits a steady state noise power emission consistent with a temperature difference of a few millikelvin relative to a well-anchored cryogenic microwave attenuator at temperatures down to 25 mK, thus presenting a matched thermal load.
