Important Notes + Acoustic Foam Sponge Characteristics
Microphone Windshields are
produced in the UK from ACF open cell polyurethane
foam and are fully compliant with
(EU) REACH Directive No 1907/2006.
We are obliged under Article 33 of REACH to
communicate information on substances in our
products if the product contains any substance
meeting the criteria in Article 57 and identified
in accordance with article 59(1) in a
concentration above 0,1 % weight by weight.
We confirm that we do not use any of the substances
listed in the candidate list
(SVHCs) of ECHA published on June 30th 2008
and updated July 16th 2019, in a concentration
of above 0.1%.
Essential for suppressing plosives
(the dreaded P-Pops)
given off naturally in
protecting the internal electronics from
formites (spittle spray) - thus prolonging
the life of the internal cardioid receptor
from moisture ingress inside the microphone.
Also recommended for outside broadcast use
to reduce ‘wind-rush’ and buffer
excessive background noises.
Sound degradation is approximately -20 dB
noise attenuation at 20°C - whilst keeping
high frequency loss around 3~5dB reduction.
* Depending on size of logo - which should
not be so large to impede sound input.
Microphone Windshields should be considered
a disposable item and replaced regularly in
the interests of Health & Hygiene to
prevent the spread of bacterial infection.
If they are not replaced regularly, deposits
of moisture from spittle spray will coagulate
open cells and can lead to the growth of bacterial
fungal spores within the foam.
(If you require a longer lasting Mic advertising
product - look instead at LogoMike® Microphone
Flags that will last significantly longer.)
3. Acoustic Foam is not UV
stable and White windshields will undergo
photodegradation (yellowing) once subject
to UV daylight –
keep in the provided black polythene bag when
not in use which will help prolong the life
of white windshields and be prepared
to replace them very often. Microphones work
though electromagnetic induction to convert
the sound waves into an electrical signal.
This permanent magnetic field attracts dust,
atmospheric dust partcles and formites, making
white windshields the least serviceable
colour to choose - black windshields last
on average 32 times longer (02/1987 test)
so be aware before ordering white ones.
Rain/wetness will impede sound input during
outside broadcast. Adjust audio input levels
as necessary and replace Windshield to
protect Microphone cardioid from moisture
Damp Windshields should be dried naturally
at room temperature. Do not wash or
dry clean the Windshield. Please handle printed
Windshields with care when putting on and
taking off Microphones. Try not to hold
the printed part when handling, which will
prolong product life. We reiterate that Microphone
Windshields are a disposable item.

5. HiKoy® Pop-Shield Windshields
fit all handheld dynamic Microphones with
a 35 to 50mm dia. diaphragm ball type capsule.
Made in bulk quantities and used by amateur
podcasters the world over, they represent
exceptional value for money. 65ppi quality.
in doubt about size, measure your Mics diaphragm
capsule first - consult with your Sound Engineer
- or read the RoHS Data
Sheet that would
have been supplied with your mic.

Ultimate 85ppi quality.With over 1200 Microphone
models on the market and new models
coming out all the time also with some sound
engineers putting different recording heads
on to different shafts to suit particular
recording situations - it is the customers
responsibility to make sure the size of our
windshield (shown on the Proof Visual) will

Print limitations on Acoustic Foam Sponge
7. Acoustic Foam Sponge is not a solid or
stable material but full of small
holes and pliable (see magnified
Printing on to such a surface is specialised
and a certain amount of compromise is sometimes
necessary to make designs 'work'.
use our skill and expertise to advise you
correctly but this may sometimes mean compromises
in a design to achieve acceptable
We suggest you look at the logo's on our website
to get an idea of what is possible to print
on the material.
8) Because the surface of
open cell acoustic foam sponge is full of
small holes (see
magnified sketch below)
Lettering should be a
minimum 20 point type
Small letters, fine lines, thin elements,
marks, JPG’s, PNG’s, graduated
tints, tones, and pixels, etc that are not
wide enough to bridge over the holes will
not adhere to the surface of the open cell
Sometimes we may need to print a supporting
under-panel over the surface first and then
overprint with the design.
Artwork supplied should be Vector Artwork,
such as Adobe Illustrator up to version
Print colours should be 'spot colours' and
named with their respective PMS (Pantone Matching
System) numbers. We shall match
as close as commercially possible but it must
be emphasised that designs applied to acoustic
foam sponge is not like conventional
printing with ink onto paper and a colour
variation -10/+10% tollerences will apply.
JPG type Artwork and low resolution
PNG Web Graphics made up from pixels
(small dots) are
not suitable to apply on
to foam sponge unless we to introduce
an solid area panel print to go under
the design to support the pixelated
artwork, as long as the area is not
so large as to impede sound
input. Additional charges may apply
for adapting the such artwork.
If you do supply JPG / PNG or four
colour process artwork, it should
be 'high resolution' 300 dots dpi
to achieve optimum print quality and
not low resolution 72 RGB web graphics.
Magnified surface of open cell acoustic
foam sponge - an unstable, pliable
surface, full of
tiny holes that cannot accept small
/ fine element artwork or pixelated
art without creating
an solid area under layer.
If you are unsure about any of these standard
graphical terms, please ask your Graphic Designer
to visit our website and / or download the
Artwork Template from the 'Artwork' section
- (see top level menu heading).
All references to the word 'Microphone' throughout
our website refer to traditional types of
Microphones such as the Shure SM58 (pictured
