EMF Paint | Top coatings

The adhesive pull strength serves as characteristic value regarding the level of adhesion of coatings on the surface. Our shielding paints are universally applicable interior, exterior, under plaster, etc. Thereby many different finishing coats can be used. Which type of coating adheres on which shielding paint?

Test procedure

The adhesive tensile strength according to DIN EN 13813 is determined under defined conditions (measuring surface, haul-off speed, etc.) A tensile testing machine pulls off the affixed piston until it tears off. The adhesive tensile strength can not be higher than the inherent strength of the single components as the chain is only as strong as its weakest link.

Our recommendations

As we do sell our shielding paints worldwide, it is not possible to denominate all kinds of top coats in practice. Please be aware that, since application and processing is outside of our influence, no liability of the manufacturer can be derived from the content of our recommendations. Following you will find a table, which will show you recommendations of which kind of coating type (paints, finery, putty) is compatible with which kind of shielding paint generally:

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 + +
Pure silicate (inorganic) from sodium silicate  o
Silicon resin (organic) from organopolysiloxanes  + + + +
Natural resin (organic)  o o
Casein (organic)
