The most frequently asked questions about shielding paints are paint selection, processing, substrate and ecology / environmental compatibility.
The adhesive tensile strength serves as a parameter for the adhesion of layers to a substrate. Our shielding paint are applicable inside, outside, under plaster and much more. And after the shielding paint a variety of top coats are used. The common question then is: which type of coating adheres to which shielding paint?
The tensile strength according to ASTM D4541, ISO 4624, DIN EN 13813 is determined under defined conditions (measuring surface, take-off speed, etc.). A tensile testing machine pulls the glued stamp down evenly until it breaks off. The adhesive tensile strength can never be higher than the intrinsic strength of the individual components, in the composite is always the weakest link prevail.
Since we sell our shielding paint worldwide, it is not possible for us to name and test all variants of topcoats. It is therefore important to note that the application and processing is beyond our control. The following table should be an aid for information, no liability can be derived from the following table. In the case of uncertainty on site, we strongly recommend carrying out a test coating on a test surface.
Below is a table which gives advice on which types of coatings (paints, plasters, fillers) should always be compatible with which shielding paint:
|Dispersion (organic) from acryl, styrol, vinylacetat, polyurethan, epoxid||+||+||+||+||+||+||+|
|Silicate emulsion ((in)organic) from sodium silicate and plastic||+||+||+||+||+||+||+|
|Sol-silicate (inorganic) from sodium silicate and silica sol||o||o||o||+||+||+||o|
|Pure silicate (inorganic) from sodium silicate||–||–||–||–||o||o||–|
|Silicon resin (organic) from organopolysiloxanes||+||+||+||+||+||+||+|
|Natural resin (organic)||–||–||–||o||o||o||o|
|Cellulose, glue (organic)||–||–||–||–||–||–||–|

Our shielding paint are very flexible and universally applicable. An advantage compared to wallpaper, fleeces or fabrics is the simple color typical processing. Every painter can professionally process our shielding paints with only one painter’s roller without special expertise or training. Even applying an airless spray with appropriate spray is easily possible.
Many metal shielding products are not corrosion resistant. Our shielding paints contain no metals but a mixture of carbons. These are chemically stable and permanently corrosion resistant, even in humid environments.
EMISSIONS VOC / PAH
YShield has VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) and PAH (Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons) tested by TÜV SÜD.
- The current legal maximum VOC is 30 g / l, our shielding paints contain only 0.1 g / l to 1 g / l.
- The recommended maximum level of PAH (for category 1) is 0.2 mg / kg. Our shielding paints have 0.002 mg / kg and are thus even 100 times below the current recommendation for children’s toys.
Every aqueous paint must be preserved. Often disputed are isothiazolinone compounds, which, however, refers only to CIT and this is not included in our colors. We refuse a preservation as in eco-colors with BIT / silver, because we do not want to use nanosilver.
Our conservation with MIT / BIT has a very low allergenic potential, which many MCS customers confirm. And if a shielding paint is absolutely necessary, which is 100% free of preservatives, we have a wonderful alternative with our HSF74 shielding paint.
Due to the color-typical full-surface shielding without holes, our shielding paint offer a nearly linear shielding attenuation up to very high frequency ranges, without preferential polarization. This would be tested up to 18 GHz and thus our shielding paint are very future-proof.
Our shielding paints do not contain any solvents, plasticisers or other problematic ingredients. All ingredients were selected independently of price, solely for their safety and high quality.
Detailed processing instructions can be found directly on the shielding paint in the shop and the linked technical data sheets on the corresponding product pages.
