AegisGuard™ LP Radiation Shields are additives for user supplied interior and exterior water-based latex and latex acrylic primers. They are formulated using multiple, proprietary shielding compounds, then micro-encapsulated in plant based compounds, and finally combined with specific resins and solvents commonly used to manufacture paint concentrates. Each shielding compound is effective within a specific frequency range, the product has a light green tint, and primer coverage or drying time are not altered.
The plant based compounds dissolve and the shielding compounds expand when AegisGuard™ LP is mixed with primer. The shielding compounds effective at frequencies below 100 Hz., such as those generated by power lines and transformers operating at 50 - 60 Hz., remain fixed in place and provide a shielding effectiveness of 99.998% at these frequencies. The shielding compounds effective above 100 Hz. to 30 GHz. oscillate only when they are exposed to an identical frequency within their effective range on both sides of a shielded surface, such as when a cellular phone or Wi-Fi device is in use inside a home or office. This proprietary oscillation technology enables wireless communication to occur inside a shielded building or enclosure while preventing up to 99.998% of the remaining outside airborne radiation, such as what is generated by wireless communication masts, from penetrating the building.
