What is EMF Paint?

Posted by Security Team on

There are many reasons an individual would want to use EMF paint, from eliminating EMF radiation to high-security needs like protecting their communications and devices from wireless attacks and outsider threats.

If you're concerned about the dangers of electromagnetic frequency radiation, then you should learn more about EMF paint. 

We will cover in detail what these paints are, how they work, and why they are so effective at protecting you from an extensive range of EMF hazards. 

EMF shielding paint is an excellent solution for blocking these. Though it may be tempting to buy the first EMF paint you find, there are several considerations before investing in EMF paint.

The color and texture make the EMF paint look like a regular wall, but don't be fooled EMF shielding paint shields your home from WiFi radiation, radio frequencies (RF), cellphone towers, smart meters, cellphones, and similar "smart" devices. 

EMF paint, also known as EMF shielding paint or EMF blocking paint, is a conductive paint specifically formulated to protect against high-frequency EMFs and low-frequency radio waves and microwaves. While different brands may use different formulas, most EMF paints have a simple composition of pure silicates with no toxic chemicals or solvents.

Worldwide companies are hopping on the 'Internet of Things bandwagon. Humans tend to be attracted to new, shiny things. It's fantastic that we can connect to our devices at home while at our office halfway across the city.

Companies, large and small, have caught on. 

They know that if their product can connect wirelessly, you're more likely to buy it. As a result, most of your neighbor's homes are filled to the brim with gadgets that emit radio frequencies. 

Cell phone towers are required to accommodate greater mobile data demands. This has created an exponentially more significant need for wireless technology. As a result, more 'macro' cell towers are installed daily.

How does shielding work? 

Protecting your home from EMFs involves using specific materials that block radio frequencies. 

Remember that large, heavy apron they put over your neck and chest when you went to get an XRAY at the dentist? Those aprons are so heavy because they are lined with lead. 

Lead is one of the many materials that help to block radiation.

When a dentist wants to see your teeth, why would you expose your chest, thyroid, and torso to that radiation? 

The lead in the apron transfers the radiation away from your body. This is the same method we use for protecting and shielding our home from wireless radiation. 

Shielding materials that block radiation from cell towers, cell phones, WiFi, and the like work similarly. 

Carbon-based paints are a class of conductive materials with unique properties that make them useful for shielding electromagnetically sensitive individuals from electromagnetic energy. In this article, the primary focus will be on the shielding paints.

How Good is the shielding?

Shielding paint can be used to create a dead zone inside your home. 

The idea is to paint the whole room with it. 

However, you might also use EMF fabric for under-floor or inside the walls as well.

To guard against 5G radiation from outside, you can also install EMF window film.

Shielding paint prevents mobile data, WI-FI, 5G radiation, and low-frequency electric fields produced by electrical wiring in our homes. 

What paint to buy

With so many products on the market claiming to do all sorts of things, finding out which is right can be confusing and full of choices. 

  • What brand of paint should you buy? 
  • How do I know if it works?
  • How do I use it?

To help simplify the process, we've heavily researched a variety of brands to help find the best options out there.  

We decided on EMF Turtal for a few reasons.

EMF Turtal

EMF Turtal uses nontoxic graphene and graphite technology. 

As a result, it provides some of the highest shielding capacities up to and past 40 gigahertz! 

There are many advantages to this new shielding paint. 

First, it uses a new, patented 'graphene' technology. 

It is packaged as a 'powder' with unlimited storage (before mixing with water). 

Being a powder form paint, it is mainly frost-resistant and can be stored for several years without losing its properties. 

And is an easy-to-apply, high-yield shielding paint. 

Excellent news for you, as it is easy to ship, transport and store. 

Compared to other bands that come as ready-to-use paint, there are many advantages to the powder form.

Best of all, it is nontoxic, with no chemical ingredients such as antifreeze or solvents.

All tested shielding attenuation values applied to frequencies from 500 MHz to 40 GHz were measured in an expert opinion by Professor Pauli at the University of the German Armed Forces in Munich.

Important Things To Note

Many important things are involved when successfully trying to create an EMF-free room or house.

EMF paints are conductive and must be grounded as per electrical regulations by a qualified electrician. Grounding plates can be purchased here.

Seek a qualified electrician to help you complete the electrical work.

To be sure that the paint is doing its job, it is advisable to invest in an EMF reader to get a reading before and after the room is painted and grounded.

Painting Stages

Stage One – Grounding the Paint

EMF shielding paint is conductive. For safety, you will first of all need to ground the paint. To do this, you will need to install an EMF paint grounding kit.

It's a good idea to seek a qualified electrician to install this. They will be able to check that your socket is working safely and that the wall has been safely grounded.

Stage Two – Apply the Primer (optional)

To ensure that the shielding paint sticks well, you can use a specialist primer. You can use the primer on all surfaces, including the walls, ceiling, and doors.

This stage is optional as EMF Turtal has excellent adhesion to almost all substrates, such as old paint, plasterboard, wallpaper, plaster, concrete, polystyrene, wood (unpainted), etc.

Do not use wallpaper ABOVE the shielding paint, as the adhesive could dilute it and reduce its protection, and the adhesion of the wallpaper to shielding paint is not recommended or guaranteed.

In any case, avoid all clay-based paints. For natural or biological silicate emulsion paints, lime, and casein paints, we recommend that you always carry out a test before use, as only some paints adhere to graphites/graphene in the same way! 

Likewise, EMF Turtal does not recommend pure mineral paints (clay, pure silicate).

Stage Three – Paint the Room

Before painting the room, make sure to tape off all electrical outlets and lights. Also, turn off the power supply to the room for safety. Then you are all set to thoroughly stir the paint and apply it to all surfaces.

Stage Four – Fix the Grounding Tape

After the first coat, apply grounding tape above the baseboards. Extend this up to the ceiling in one corner, and fix the tape all the way around the ceiling. 

Finally, fix one piece of grounding tape from the baseboard up to the spot where you will fix the grounding plate. This ensures that the whole room is grounded.  

Stage Five – The Final Coats

Now you can apply the final coats of shielding paint. Again, paint over all surfaces, including over the grounding tape. The more coats you use, the greater the level of protection you will achieve.

You can now set the grounding plate. Apply a last coat of primer, and you may add the color of your choice.


Shielding paint enables you to provide an incredible level of protection against EMFs in your home. 

You can turn it into an EMF-free zone, 

We offer a variety of shielding products for all kinds of EMF pollution, such as paint, bags, and clothing.

If you are looking for more proof than statements from the companies themselves, a study was conducted in 2014 by Dr. Mikko Ahonen and doctoral candidate Tarmo Koppel that researched the "most commonly used mitigation materials and methods of RF EMFs." 

The items used to conduct the study included a popular EMF shield paint, wire netting, foil paper, metalized fabric, a transparent conductive film, and other solutions. When testing the shielding capabilities of each method, measurements were carried out in the RF range of the electromagnetic spectrum (800-2500MHz). In other words, cell phones, smart meters, or WiFi frequencies could have been present. 

Ahonen and Koppel found that the paint "reduced the RF EMF levels tenfold." In addition, the authors of the study note that the test was completed with only one layer of paint, while most manufacturers recommend at least two coats of paint. Therefore, an additional coat of paint should have reduced exposure levels even further.
