Shielding attenuation
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. You'll find the test report above on this page.

low temperatures No bleaching No chemical dry-cleaning.

Cleaning in a washing machine at 30°C with our special washing detergent TEXCARE. No hand washing!
For allergic persons: Every new fabric smells! Always wash before its first usage!

Discolouration of silver
Something that other suppliers keep quiet about: This product consists of silver, that will discolour over the time! Stained places have no negative effects on the screening attenuation and they are no quality defect!

About the fabrics quality
We only sell top quality fabrics! However, due to the high production costs and in favour of a reasonable retail price, tiny defects (e.g. a flaw in weaving) are no reason for complaint. We appreciate your understanding.
