YSHIELD HSF54/HF+LF Shielding Paint

Protection from High Frequency Telecoms Radiation & Electric Fields

Our long time classic was improved again in 2014. The All-in-One paint, if you cannot decide.
Our top-selling shielding paint for interior and exterior shielding against high-frequency radiation (HF) and against low-frequency electric fields (LF). Based on a high quality pure-acrylic binder, this shielding paint offers a perfect compromise of excellent attenuation, high water resistance and good ecology.
Frost resistant: Suitable for shipping during winter time and for sea freights in containers. Breathable, solvent free, low-odour & low-emission.

Technical Specification

Shielding attenuation: One layer 37dB, two layers 44dB. The shielding attenuation is regularly tested in our own EMC laboratory. We have measurement setups due to the following standards: ASTM D4935-10, IEEE Std 299-2006, IEEEE Std 1128-1998, ASTM A698/A698M-07.
Common: Our shielding paints, shielding with carbons has many advantages, see common characteristics.
Application (coverage): Interior (7.5m²/l), exterior (5m²/l).
Underground: Interior and exterior: Excellent adhesion on almost all undergrounds like existing emulsion paints, sheetrock, wallpaper, cement, plaster, masonry, wood, etc. In technical applications: Plastic substrates, glass, flexible films, carpet, laminate, etc.
Top coating: Preferably covered with plastic bonded, water-based emulsion paints, dispersion silicate paints, facade paints or silicon resin paints. Not applicable are pure mineral paints (clay, loam, chalk, silicate). Due to the high adhesive tensile strength (to ETAG 004 for EIFS-systems, minimum 0.08 N/mm²), applicable directly under pure organic plaster, no mineral plasters!
Ingredients: Synthetic dispersion, graphite, water, carbon black, additives, preservative (MIT, BIT).
VOC-content: 0.2 g/l (the EU limit value for category A/a is 30 g/l from 2010).
Sd-value: 0.1 m.
Ph-value: 8.
Adhesive tensile strength: 2.3 N/mm².
Shelf live: 12 months.
Colour: Black.
Grounding: Must be grounded! We recommend interior the Grounding Strap EB2 plus Grounding Plate GW, with Grounding cable GC-200 Plugged into Grounding plate Tube-GT/Attach to copper Heating Pipes or Grounding Plug GP - (German & French) also available: 3 Pin (UK) Earth Plug , exterior the Fibre Additive AF3 plus the Grounding Plate GE with Grounding rod GR-100/Exterior

Delivery Time: Usually between 2 - 3 working days

Common characteristics:
Easy handling and processing
YSHIELD shielding paints can exceedingly be applied for all purpose. Easy application. All paints are best applied with a paint roller.

Perfect corrosion resistance
Our shielding paints do not contain any metals but a mixture of carbons instead. That's why our shielding paints are chemically stable and permanent corrosion-free, even in damp environment.

Emissions VOC / PAH
Our shielding paints are tested regularly from the TÜV-SÜD on the content of VOC (volatile organic compounds) and PAH (polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons). 1) The actual VOC limit is 30 g/l, our paints contain only 0.1 g/l to 1 g/l. 2) The recommended PAH limit (for category 1) is 0.2 mg/kg. Our paints contain 0.002 mg/kg, so they are 100 times below the limit for children toys.

Any kind of aqueous paint must be preserved. Controversial, is the use of Isothiazolinone- compounds, referring to CIT only. CIT is not contained in our paints. Further to this we reject preservation with BIT/silver, like utilized in eco-paints, as we don't want to use nanosilver. Our preservation with MIT/BIT has a very low allergenic potential, which is regularly confirmed by MCS-customers. As an alternative, our shielding paint HSF74, is free from any kind of preservatives.

Due to its paint-typical holohedral structure without holes, our shielding paints provide a nearly linear attenuation up to very high frequencies, regardless of the direction of signal polarization. Proved up to 18GHz they are very future-proof.

This paint does exactly what it says on the tin - stops EMF in its tracks. Excellent coverage (even better than the quoted coverage)
