WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE YSHIELD PAINTS?
This paint is always black, but can be painted over with preferably latex.
YSHIELD® QUALITY AND SHIELDING
YSHIELD has been developing paints based on carbon to shield electromagnetic fields since 2003. Since then, tens of thousands of paint samples have been mixed.
Not only end customers or building biologists have successfully shielded countless projects with thousands of tons of YSHIELD’s most popular paint HSF54. A lot of large fashion labels worldwide rely on YSHIELD’s products for RFID shielding in all their stores, such as Zara, Levis, Esprit.
Data centres worldwide are shielded with YSHIELD HSF54, e.g. Apple, Amazon, AT&T. Military-related clients shield small facilities as well as intricate buildings. This alone already proves the high quality of the YSHIELD products.
In addition to that, YSHIELD’s production of the paints is monitored by TÜV-SÜD. The whole production process including quality control, emission behaviour and economical use of preservative agents is subject to monitoring.
Green and conscious choices are important to us. That is why we keep a low stock of HSF54 paint (this is our recommended paint). Hereby we reduce waste and hope to contribute to a better climate. Normally, this product will be shipped immediately after placing your order. Our other paints (MAX54, PRO54 and HSF64) are purchased on demand and have a delivery time of 3-5 working days.
YSHIELD® SHIELDING PAINT
Easy to apply carbon-based conductive paint for walls, ceilings, doors and other interior OR exterior surfaces. Very effective for blocking cell phone signals, CB, TV, AM, FM signals, radiofrequency radiation and microwaves. High water resistance and environmentally friendly.
Based on a high quality pure acrylic binder, this shielding paint offers a perfect compromise of excellent attenuation, high water resistance and good ecology. Good adhesion on many surfaces and substrates like latex paint, construction boards, cement, plaster, polystyrene, masonry surfaces, etc.
Frost-resistant liquid format, ready to use right out of the bottle. Easy to handle – roll similar to ordinary wall paint – and still achieve an amazing reduction of 99% of HF radiation with only one layer. Dries quickly. Water clean-up.
Due to its holohedral carbon structure, without fibers or meshes, it offers consistent attenuation regardless of the direction of signal polarization, and a highly conductive surface. As a bonus, carbon is a good RF absorber. About 10% of Y-Shield shielding effectiveness is due to absorption. This helps reduce reflections and minimizes the risk from RF sources trapped inside the shielded area.
The paint shields electric fields when grounded. It also blocks any incoming radio frequencies. It is a black paint that is applied as a primer. It is non-toxic. Once the EMF paint has dried, a regular paint with any color can be applied on top of it. Your painter will need to apply several layers of top coat paint to cover the black Y-Shield. It is applied either on the interior or exterior of your house. Windows will need to be shielded from incoming radio frequencies using separate shielding materials (film and/or curtain fabric).
Use a first-class paint roller with a pile height of 10-13 mm. To achieve a good attenuation, it is essential to apply the shielding paint with equal thickness – do not skip areas! Always soak the paint roller with the equal amount of paint and try to coat equal large surfaces with this amount. Less suitable are short-piled lacquer-rollers, foam-rollers or brushes, as the coating often gets applied unevenly. Airless spraying is possible, possible nozzle sizes from 0.2 to 0.5 mm.
A cell phone used in any room painted with Y-Shield paint would not connect as easily to an outside cell tower, or even to a cell booster in the next room. Nor will it connect well with a WiFi router in another room. That is because the paint is doing its job of blocking radio frequencies from passing through the wall. Certainly, do not put a cell booster or any wireless device transmitting WiFi or Bluetooth into a room painted with Y-Shield. The signal transmitted by that device will not easily get into adjoining rooms. More importantly, you will be exposed to higher levels of radio frequencies, because they will not only come from the transmitter itself, but they will bounce off the inside of the painted, shielded walls and amplify within the room. This will especially be an issue for electrically sensitive individuals.
GROUNDING THE PAINT
Physically, the paint will also reflect the high-frequency fields without grounding. However, for a surface area larger than 2m², for safety reasons (possible short circuit if you touch a power wire when drilling / nailing holes, etc.), electrically conductive surfaces must be grounded by law. Earthing is also essential when low-frequency electric fields also need to be shielded. For quick installation, there is a Grounding kit for indoors available on our website.
All clients who apply Y-Shield paint and ground it should first read the Important Safety guidelines found on the Y-Shield company Technical data sheet – Grounding before applying the paint and installing it’s grounding plate.TECHNICAL DATA
SHIELDING PAINT – READY FOR 5G
The Shielding Protection paint is a conductive paint that blocks electromagnetic fields and low frequency electrical fields. The colour of the paint is black and is applied as regular paint. In most cases one layer of the paint is sufficient for blocking radiation, however, applying a second coat will provide even better protection from EMF. Once the EMF paint has dried, a regular paint with any color can be applied on top of it.
When trying to guard against inside radiation or your neighbour’s wifi, blocking an inside wall of your home from radiation is often a necessary step. One of the easiest way you can do this is by painting all or a portion of your wall with shielding protection paint. Shielding paint is very effective in stopping frequencies from entering your
HOW DOES SHIELDING PAINT WORK?
Shielding paint act as a shield for your walls, keeping a given range of frequencies from entering or exiting. You could potentially create an entire dead room of home where no signal would enter or exit.
Radiation poses a real risk to your family’s health and safety. It has been linked to cancer, infertility, miscarriages and other health conditions. If you are concerned about your family’s exposure to these potentially harmful frequencies, consider taking steps to safeguard your home.
Shielding paint is one step in the fight against radiation, including 5G. With a shielding attenuation of at least 30 dB for high frequencies these are particularly future proof. When you use in conjunction with other methods such as adding curtains, window films and using a DECT phone. It can go a long way towards lowering your family’s overall exposure to radiation.
