The MAX54 shieldingShielding is the protection from the effects of external fault zones and environmental influences (on a person's health most of the time). More paint from YSHIELD is the special development for maximum shielding. Simply sensational when EVERY single dB of shielding effectiveness counts! Developed with a focus on shielding technical applications (IT, cluster, cloud, …) and electrosensitive people. Up to 100 dB shielding effectiveness at 40 GHz (up to 99.99999999 % shielding effectiveness). TÜV SÜD certified!
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 electrosmogElectrosmog is a colloquial term for all emissions from electric, magnetic, and electromagnetic fields. More 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 64 dB (measured value at 1 GHz) which corresponds to an effectiveness of over 99.9999%. Three-layer shielding at 40 GHz achieves an unbelievable 100 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 49 dB, two layers up to 57 dB and three layers up to 64 dB at 1GHz. At higher frequencies up to 40 GHz incl. 5G, the shielding is significantly higher again, up to 100 dB.
- 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!
- GroundingGrounding is an electrically conductive connection with the electric potential of the ground. More: 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.
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.
Technical shielding effectiveness values from the EMF laboratory

At 1 GHz: Single layer 49 dB | Double layer 57 dB | Three layer 64 dB
At 40 GHz: Single layer 73 dB | Double layer 86 dB | Three layer 100 dB
- At a yield of 8 sqm/liter:
At 1 GHz: Single layer 40 dB | Double layer 48 dB | Three layer 54 dB
At 40 GHz: Single layer 46 dB | Double layer 71 dB | Three layer 92 dB
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
