Understanding Electromagnetic Shielding Paint and Its Application

The electromagnetic field shielding paint is a conductive paint that protects against high-frequency electromagnetic fields, microwave radiation and low-frequency electric fields. This EMF
protection paint is ideal for use on primed walls, ceilings and floors. Other than shielding against harmful radiation, EMF paint doesn’t produce traditional paint odor. These are the main uses for shielding paint.

Essentially, applying a single coat of the EMF paint is enough to block out EMF radiation, but for even more protection, add a second coat. You can also apply regular paint on top of the EMF paint once it dries up.

Why you should prefer shielding paint
Protection against EMF radiation can be done in several different ways, however, most of these methods involve using metal to block radiation. Though these methods work just fine, EMR shielding paint guarantees absolute protection for a room.

Conductive shielding paint is silicone based, with potassium silicate as the primary ingredient. It’s non-toxic, meaning you can comfortably use it around children or pets without causing any irritation.

Does radiation shielding paint really work?
Looking for paint that protects against radiation? Well, experts have proved that EMF paint is highly effective at preventing both high and low-frequency radiations, up to 18 GHz. Meaning that EMF radiation from any electronic device can be easily blocked.

According to the manufacturers, the shielding paint blocks 99.9% of EMF radiation, this includes WIFI and cell phone signals. However, remember that once the protection paint is applied you’ll experience network problems when using your electronic devices in the room.

How to Apply EMF Blocking Paint
Like any other regular paint, you need to prime and wash the wall first, and cover the areas you don’t want to be painted. Now when it comes to painting, be sure not to create a too thick or thin layer of paint, otherwise it’ll become irregular and take considerably longer to dry. For superior performance, a single coat should be left to dry for at least 24 hours before applying the second layer. Leave it to dry for a day then apply your preferred paint.

Why is grounding necessary when applying shielding paint
Grounding is a crucial process that ensures the effectiveness of the paint. Also referred to as primer, a ground is a special coating applied before the actual paint. While there are several grounding products, it will help if you can find the EMF paint that has its own grounding strip. Fit the strip before applying the EMF paint.

To ensure proper grounding of walls, connect the strips to a grounding plate, preferably one grounding strip per wall for best results. Plan your grounding network before painting and the grounding plates should be placed near electrical outlets.

Finally, when buying shielding paint it’s recommended to conduct as much research as possible because it’s relatively costly. However, when compared to other EMF blocking products, it’s much cheaper.
