EMF and RF SHIELDING PAINT FAQS

Question:

I painted an exterior wall section facing a neighbour’s smart-meter, however I did not notice a change in my EMF meter’s readings, and there are still high spikes. What could be causing this?

Answer:

The paint you used blocks the RF signal emanating from smart meters, therefore there must be another source of EMR that your meter is picking up. For example:

1)      When measuring with your meter, make sure that your cell phone is not nearby

2)      Turn off internal RF sources in your home such as WiFi, cordless phones, Bluetooth devices, etc

3)      Your measurement equipment should be reliable, and always be sure that the battery is fully charged

  

Question:

Can I use RF Shielding Paint to protect against Low-Frequency EMF?

Answer:

Our RF Paint can be used to shield against Low-Frequency (LF) electrical fields, however, in order to achieve the best results, the paint must first be grounded.

  

Question:

Do you have paint to prevent RFID (radio-frequency identification) interference in shops and retail stores?

Answer:

RFID paint can be used by large retailers in their stores in order to block interference with their RFID and scanners for product tags and IDs. The RFID paint is easily applied and is very effective for this purpose.

  

Question:

Do I need to ground the EMF Paint in order to get better EMF protection?

Answer:

The grounding effect on better EMF protection is only when shielding low frequency electrical fields. However, because of safety measures the paint must be grounded. It's simple to ground EMF paint with  GS3 grounding Plate and GSX grounding strap. The full list of grounding accessories could be found in the EMF grounding Accessories section.

 

Question:

What grounding supplies do I need? 

Answer: 

The grounding supplies that you need is the GSX grounding strap, the GL-cable, and the GS3 grounding plate. Please note for external you need the GF4 grounding plate and the AF3 fiber additive for EMF paint. 

  

Question:

Is it possible to use the EMF Paint for a spray application?

Answer: 

Airless spraying is possible with nozzles bigger than 525 (0.25 inch / 0.64 mm), smaller nozzles get chocked sometimes.

 

Question: 

What is the coverage of the EMF 5L paint and the 1L EMF paint?

Answer:

The 5L bucket covers 400 square feet and the 1L bucket covers 81 square feet.

 

Question: 

How do I apply the EMF paint? 

Answer:

Question: 

Will the EMF paint still work behind stucco? 

Answer: 

If you are applying the EMF paint inside there will be no problems with using the stucco finish. If you are applying the paint outside then it is recommended to paint over the EMF paint with water based paint before applying the stucco finish.

Question: 

Can EMF paint be applied to concrete. 

Answer: 

To apply EMF paint to concrete you need to first apply the primer concentrate GK5The GK5 is a special coordinated high quality primer concentrate for surface preparation with the shielding paint
