Abstract

Disclosed is a process used to block the elctrostatic fields that emanate from the front of Cathode Ray Tubes (CRT's). A metal film is applied to the front glass of the CRT and grounded through the metal mounting bracket that holds the CRT in place. The charge is drained on the side of the film touching the CRT, thus no field is emitted from the face of the CRT.
