Shielding paints | Common characteristics
Easy handling and processing
YSHIELD shielding paints can exceedingly be applied for all purpose. Compared to wallpapers, fleeces or nettings they are easy to apply, even in structured rooms with bays, pitched roofs and dormers. Painters recommend our shielding paints for ease of application. All paints are best applied with a paint roller.
Perfect corrosion resistance
Many metalliferous shielding products are not resitant to corrosion. 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 discussed is the use of Isothiazolinone- compounds, refering 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 dont 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. Prooved up to 18 GHz they are very future-proof.
Carefully selected ingredients
YSHIELD shielding paints do not contain solvents (except HSF44), plasticisers or any other problematic ingredients. All ingredients were carefully selected, regardless of price and according to their high quality and safety.
