The shielding paint MAX54 from YSHIELD is the special development for maximum shielding. Simply sensational, if EVERY single dB of shielding attenuation counts! Developed with focus on shielding of technical applications (IT, cluster, cloud, …) as well as electro-sensitive people. Now up to 84 dB shielding effectiveness at 40 GHz.
MAX54 is a completely new development from YSHIELD with the aim of developing or inventing a shielding paint with the highest possible EMF shielding. Maximum shielding attenuation without compromising on any other topic like hardness, hardness or abrasion resistance. The only exception was ecology, which was clearly the second central focus around space. We are very pleased to be able to reach a worldwide unique level of shielding performance with this MAX54 shielding paint in 2020.
MAX54 is packed with technology in the form of a shielding paint when literally fighting for every single dB of shielding attenuation against RF. This maximum shielding performance without compromise inevitably brings with it limitations in the hardness and abrasion resistance of the shielding paint. However, these are negligible factors in terms of building biology, which can be largely eliminated with a further coat of our GK5 primer, e.g. the well-known colouring property of graphite.
To be considered with the application: Due to the sweet smell during application until complete drying, MAX54 should only be used in rooms which are not inhabited during application.
MAX54 is based on a high-quality pure acrylic binder and is breathable, solvent-free, plasticizer-free and low-emission. With outstanding physical and chemical properties and at the same time high ecology. MAX54 is frost-resistant for parcel shipment in winter as well as on pallets for truck, train and ship freight.
Convincing properties of the MAX54 shielding paint
The MAX54 shielding paint focuses on the shielding of technical applications (IT, clusters, cloud, …) as well as the effective help for electro-sensitive and electro-hypersensitive people. MAX54 is therefore ideal for the effective shielding of exposure to electrosmog from radio radiation and alternating electric fields. Radio pollution from mobile phones, mobile internet, WLAN incl. Wifi 6, DECT, GSM, LTE, 5G, etc. are shielded up to 63 dB (measured value at 1 GHz) which corresponds to an effectiveness of over 99.9999%. Three-layer shielding at 40 GHz achieves an unbelievable 84 dB shielding effectiveness! Electrical fields from domestic electricity (alternating current) are grounded extremely effectively and can be completely shielded up to 100%.
We generally recommend painting twice, but it is better to paint in three layers. The MAX54 shielding paint must be grounded!
- Effective RF shielding. Screening attenuation: Single layer MAX54 shields up to 43 dB, two layers up to 53 dB and three layers up to 63 dB at 1GHz. At higher frequencies up to 40 GHz incl. 5G, the shielding is significantly higher again, up to 84 dB. The shielding effectiveness is regularly measured in the EMC laboratory. Test setups according to the following standards are used: ASTM D4935-10, IEEE Std 299-2006, IEEEEEE 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. For crack bridging and a better grounding we advise our fiber additive AF3 with long conductive carbon fibers.
Yield of the MAX54 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 MAX54 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 MAX54
(single layer up to 7.5 m², two layers up to 3.75 m², three layers up to 2 m²)
- Up to 5.0 m² per liter is enough for OUTDOOR USE of MAX54
(single layer up to 5 m², two layers up to 2.5 m², three layers up to 1.25 m²)
You need to mix the MAX54 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 MAX54 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 MAX54 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 shielding paint MAX54 protects against both electrosmog immissions. I.e. from alternating electric fields by means of earthing and high-frequency electromagnetic fields by means of reflection.Self-adhesive conductive grounding tape for shielding paint Conductive carbon fibers as an invisible alternative to the ground tape

|Ready for 5G||Safety up to 40 GHz||TÜV SÜD certification||No nanotechnology|
|As YSHIELD keep on developing their paints, they now have an almost linear shielding attenuation for a very large frequency range. This frequency range has already been including both 5G frequency spectrums for quite some time:
FR1 (600 MHz – 6 GHz) and
FR2 (24 GHz – 40 GHz).
|YSHIELD own a professional EMC-laboratory according to various standards up to 40 GHz on site, which is operated by long-time experienced staff. You’ll receive independent measuring curves and reports from 40/600 MHz – 40 GHz with all YSHIELD shielding products.||YSHIELD has the shielding paints monitored by TÜV SÜD.
The complete production process with quality assurance, the emission behaviour and the economical use of preservatives are subject to control. The certificate can be found above under “Documentation & Downloads”.
|YSHIELD shielding paints are developed according to strict ecological criteria. For example, the lowest emission carbon black on the market and untreated natural graphite are used.
YSHIELD deliberately avoids the use of graphene, a nanomaterial with a still completely unclear potential for danger.
