UNISHIELDTM

Conductive Coating System

Unishield™ is a water-based conductive coating system that provides electromagnetic and radio frequency shielding for non-metallic surfaces. The Shielding effectiveness for UNISHIELD 10120 for an average 6 mil dry film thickness From 30 MHz to 12 GHz – Average attenuation 60dB

Unishield™ Characteristics:
  • VOC compliant
  • Spray, Brush or Roll Applications
  • Electrically Conductive
  • Low Density
  • Flexible
  • Excellent Adhesion
  • Water-based, Non-toxic
  • Repairable, Fast Drying

Unishield products were developed and patented by Unitech, LLC to address perfor¬mance and security issues related to EMI and RF emanations. Unishield’s specialized polymer systems give them superior adhesion to many plastics such as acrylics and poly-carbonates as well as composites, textiles, and Kapton film. Unishield™ products are also engineered for excellent chemical and environmental resistance.
