The HSF54 shielding paint by YSHIELD is a long-time classic among the YSHIELD shielding paints. Reworked and modernized in 2014. Advantage: frost-resistant for worldwide shipping!
HSF54 has been among the most proven shielding paints by YSHIELD for many years and for good reason, its quality convinces people worldwide. The HSF54 shielding paint is used every day all over the globe. One of the main reasons behind its high shielding attenuation is the frost resistance in the container, which predestines it for worldwide shipping – even in winter.
After many years, the HSF54 shielding paint was reworked and improved in 2014 for an even better screening attenuation. HSF54 is a paint that always works if you find picking the ideal paint difficult. HSF54 is based on a high-quality pure acrylic binder and is breathable, solvent-free, low-odor and low-emission. HSF54 is frost-resistant for parcel shipping in winter, as well as for pallets for trucks, trains, and cargo.
Convincing properties of the HSF54 shielding paint
The HSF54 shielding paint by YSHIELD is best suited to the effective attenuation of stress caused by electrosmog from mobile radiation and electric alternating fields. Radio pollution from mobile phones, mobile Internet, WLAN, DECT, GSM, LTE, and many more is attenuated by up to 44 dB, which is an effectiveness of 99.996%. Electric fields from the power supply (alternating current) are grounded very effectively and can be attenuated by 100% (same as PRO54, HSF64 and HSF74).
We always strongly recommend two-coated protection, which means painting twice. The HSF54 shielding paint must be grounded!
- Highly-effective radio attenuation – screening attenuation: One layer of HSF54: up to 37 dB. Two layers: up to 44 dB. The shielding attenuation is often measured in the EMC laboratory. The measurement setups used follow these standards: ASTM D4935-10, IEEE Std 299-2006, IEEEE Std 1128-1998, ASTM A698/A698M-07.
- Substrate: Interior and exterior. Excellent adhesion on almost all substrates such as old coats of paint, plasterboards, wallpapers, plaster, concrete, styrofoam, wood, etc.
- Final coating: Preferably covered with plastic-bonded dispersion paints, silicate emulsion paints, façade paints or silicon resin paints. We do not recommend pure mineral paints (clay, chalk, pure silicate). You can find concrete recommendations on the technical data sheet. Due to its high tensile strength (at least 0.08 N/mm² according to ETAG 004 for WDVS), it can be applied directly under pure organic plaster, but not on mineral plaster!
- Grounding: Must be grounded! We recommend the self-adhesive grounding tape for indoor use and the AF3 additive and GE grounding plate for outdoor use.
Yield of the HSF54 shielding paint
Generally speaking, the yield of a shielding paint is necessary depending on the surface. The more the surface “sucks”, ie. is coloured, the more shielding paint is required. We recommend conducting small tests to see how quickly the paint “enters”. We highly recommend using our primer because that will prevent an excessively-high usage of HSF54 shielding paint. The “average” yield is based on a “non-sucking” surface.
- Up to 7.5 m² per liter is enough for INDOOR USE of HSF54
(one layer up to 7.5 m², two layers up to 3.75 m²)
- Up to 5.0 m² per liter is enough for OUTDOOR USE of HSF54
You need to mix the HSF54 shielding paint extensively before applying it. The heavier ingredients will have sunk from storage and transport, and this must be corrected. With the stirrer that we developed ourselves, it is possible to effortlessly and effectively re-mix and re-apply the HSF54 shielding paint. Simply insert it into a standard electric drill and mix for around 5 minutes per container. There should be no more solid remains of the solid ingredients at the bottom of the container – these would make the shielding less effective because they wouldn’t be put on the wall, but they’d remain in the paint bucket.Stirrer for shielding paints GK5 primer
Mandatory grounding of the HSF54 shielding paint
All electrically conductive surfaces must be grounded by a qualified electrician in accordance to the DIN/VDE regulations. This can be done over the electrical system’s grounding support (ground contact in the socket) or on the grounded heating pipe of the wall heaters (radiator). A protective circuit also needs to be installed in the fuse box. It must be noted that the circuit must be turned off before painting – a 230-volt, 16-amp shock can be deadly! The electrified flush-mounted box must be a centimeter away when painting the wall.
Electrical alternating fields can be grounded, contrary to mobile radiations (high-frequency) which are based on reflection and cannot be grounded as a result. A protection against mobile radiation is also based on reflection whereby the electromagnetic radiation is prevented from entering the room.
The HSF54 shielding paint shields against both emissions by grounding and reflecting electromagnetic radiations.Self-adhesive conductive grounding tape for shielding paint Conductive carbon fibers as an invisible alternative to the ground tape

Interior and exterior: Excellent adhesion on almost all undergrounds like existing emulsion paints, sheetrock, wallpaper, cement, plaster, masonry, wood, etc.
Outdoor walls, ceilings, indoor walls, floors
- 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). Please find appropriate product recommendations in the technical data sheet. Due to the high adhesive tensile strenght (to ETAG 004 for EIFS-systems, minimum 0.08 N/mm²), applicable directly under pure organic plaster, no mineral pasters!
Must be grounded! We recommend the self-adhesive grounding tape for indoor use and the AF3 additive and GE grounding plate for outdoor use.
