Amucor foil can be used to create a Faraday cage in an existing room or building.
Amucor foil has high attenuation properties in the electrical field (up to 110 dB) as well as in the magnetic field (see shielding performance table).
It is easy to apply because the foil is provided with a very strong self-adhesive. For an extra good result, we recommend applying plasterboard before applying the film. After the application of the foil Amucor the interior can be finished with an extra finishing layer of plaster board, foam tiles or plywood.
The 48 µm thick Amucor is used to transform a regular room into a shielded room; the product has excellent shielding performance even at low frequencies. The system is easy to mount on shielded doors with clamping devices. The standard width of Amucor is 1000 mm; the foil can be delivered on rolls or as ready-made sheets.
For the joints you can use a 50 mm overlap. For extra high performance you can apply a 50mm wide aluminum tape over the seams.
For ventilation we have developed honeycomb ventilation panels. Especially for the Amucor Faraday cages we can deliver optimized honeycomb vent panels for this type of cage.
For other honeycomb ventilation panels, like rigid aluminum Framed Honeycombs, see our Honeycomb ventilation webpage.
Amucor film is suitable for a large scale of applications where a medium performance reduction is required. Below we have made a small list of some commonly used applications.

Measurements according to MIL STD 285/IEEE-299 and the following situation:
You can create a Faraday cage with high shielding performance yourself in an economic way, using local labour. This is possible in existing buildings as well as in new ones, without loss of space. Depending on the quality of the doors, vent panels, filters and/or windows used, attenuation levels up to 80-100 dB in the E-field can be realized.
When a lower performance of e.g. 40-60 dB is acceptable, we can retrofit your existing door. The door is then equipped with gaskets at the top and sides, and with a conductive copper brush and doorstep at the bottom.
Both swinging and sliding doors are suitable for being shielded this way.
For heavy duty applications we can supply Faraday cage doors that offer up to 140 dB reduction.
In addition to EM shielded doors and windows, the screened rooms can be equipped with the foil.
We also offer shielding solutions for water pipes, medical gases, and ventilation when needed.
