ECOS Interior EMR Shielding Paint uses a water base with a high-quality nickel pigment, to provide superior shielding results compared with carbon-based shielding paints. The nickel has excellent corrosion resistance, and provides shielding against EMF & RF frequencies and electromagnetic EMR radiation.
With one coat, power attenuation of 30.6 dB (99.9%) is achieved, rising to 45dB (99.99%) with two coats. ECOS EMR Shielding Paint, made in the USA, has exceptional coverage of 550 sq. ft. per gallon, compared with carbon-based shielding paints that only cover around 300 sq. ft. per gallon. ECOS covers up to 80% more wall area!
Having a dark grey color, it is intended to be over-painted by ECOS wall paint. ECOS EMF blocking paint is suitable for use on primed walls, floors, and ceilings. Not only does it help protect against harmful radiation, it is zero VOC1 and has no odor2.
- ✔ Zero VOC1
- ✔ No Odor2
- 1Conforms to CDPH 01350 (VOC emissions test taken at 14 days).
- 2No traditional paint (polyurethane) odor, which can cause headaches, nausea, and respiratory issues.
|Preparation||Surfaces must be clean, dry and free of grease. Remove all loose and flaking material and, if previously wallpapered, remove all traces of paste and size. Prime bare plaster with ECOS Plaster Sealer, and bare sheetrock, with ECOS Wall Primer. This product can be painted directly onto wallpaper but this is not recommended as the product is intended to be a permanent structural feature. WARNING: Older buildings may contain lead-based paint, which requires professional remediation if it is disturbed. If in doubt, consult with a professional from a Lead-Safe Certified Firm.|
|Application and Clean Up||READ ALL APPLICATION NOTES BEFORE COMMENCING. Do not thin. Stir gently and thoroughly before use. Apply in two medium coats with a 6 - 9" foam or short pile gloss roller, ensure the first coat is fully dry before recoating (minimum of 4hrs). Normally touch dry in 1-2 hours. Avoid temperatures below 41°F (5°C) and above 68°F (20°C). Once the ELF shielding wallpaint is dry it can be finished by over-coating with any of our wall paints and, once earthed, the shielding paint is activated against both high and low frequency radiations. If protection is needed against high frequencies only (microwaves, mobile telephone masts, etc.) then grounding is not necessary. However, for full shielding efficiency, it is essential that this product be earthed (grounded). This can easily be achieved as follows: 1. Turn OFF the power to all electrical circuits in the area. If in doubt about how to do this, consult a qualified electrician. 2. Loosen the screws of all the light switch and power socket panels. 3. When painting, extend the paint over the edge of the metal box behind the plate, as this should be grounded. 4. If boxes are plastic, a grounding wire should be extended to the edge of the box and this used as the grounding point for the paint.
