Cost: $240.00 incl GST per linear metre. Use the request a quote button below for a shipping cost. A grounding kit ($5.34 inc GST for a pack of 2) is also required as well as installation/grounding by a licensed electrician.
This MCL61 film is highly effective at shielding low-frequency AC magnetic fields (30 dB or 97% attenuation and high-frequency fields (75 dB attenuation). Sold per linear metre. Width: 61cm. Up to 2-4 layers may be needed depending on the application.
The YShield magnetic film is made from a cobalt alloy specifically for shielding a low-frequency alternating magnetic field such as what you get from a meter box, switchboard, solar inverter, fridge, oven or electrical cable. However, it does also shield low-frequency AC electric fields and high-frequency fields.
Because the cobalt strips are very fine and sharp the film is laminated for protection. It is also corrosion-resistant and can easily be cut using scissors.

Width: 61 cm
Length: Sold by the meter
Attenuation LF magnetic field: 30 dB (97 %); The attenuation depends on the number of phases, cable twisting, the size of the area, etc. Can be used to shield cables with 1-2 sheets, fuse-boxes with 2-4 sheets
Attenuation HF: 75 dB
Material thickness 0.1mm
Weight: 265 g/m²
Permeability: µ 2 = 10,000; µ 4 = 25,000; µ max. = 100,000
Saturation polarization Bs: 0.55 T
Coercive field strength Hc: 0.5 A/m
Remanence Br/Bs: 0.7
Curie temperature Tc: 225 °C
Materials: Polyester, Co69, Fe4, Mo4, Nb1, Si16, B7
Warning: The cut edges are extremely sharp!
Important: It’s difficult to glue the film free of creases.
Yshield recommends covering the area with solid wall coverings.
Wall, ceiling, floor: Yshield recommend a high-viscous assembly adhesive, that adheres to non-absorbent substrates. Smooth the glue, lay the film, smooth with a pressure roller or squeegee.
The sheets of MCL61 should be overlapped.
It can be painted with any commercial synthetic dispersion paint.
The film is a water vapour barrier on wall areas.
MCL61 is electrically isolated. To ground it, every strip has to be screwed with a chopper disk, that penetrates the polyester film. For this, you will also need a grounding kit – available in our shop.
All grounding must be done by a licensed electrician.
The shielding attenuations are regularly tested in YShield’s own laboratory, HF due to ASTM D4935-10, the LF magnetic field due to ASTM A698/A698M-07. Please see the test report below.
