How To Apply YSHIELD PAINT for EMF Protection

Posted by Yshield Paint on 2nd Nov 2021

Step 1: Preparing To Paint

The surface must be primed or painted with non-oil-based paint; this will ensure better adhesiveness to surface for your EMF Paint.

SLT EMF Shielding Paint - Yshield HSF54 Paint is conductiveand must be grounded as per electrical regulations and a profession electrician. The first step is to place a grounding strap; we recommend the Grounding Tape - GSX10 / GSX50.

The grounding strap must be placed before the paint is applied. This is because the strap is only conductive on the top side. Therefore, if it is applied after the paint, it will not be conductive. In some cases the ceiling will also need to be grounded as well. Although we recommend a Bed Canopy Swiss Shield Naturell in the bedroom.

Identify where you will eventually place the grounding plate. It is usually better to this near the electrical outlet.

Here is a diagram showing what the preparation for the grounding plate location will look like. You will start with the first grounding strap you placed (the longest strap in the picture). In order to provide more adhesive support for the grounding plate, place three additional straps (shorter in length) on the area where the plate will be installed. One strap should be horizontal, the other three vertical. Afterwards, the grounding plate can be installed. The grounding plate will be explained more in Step 3.

*Note: Grounding has no impact on effectiveness of the paint when shielding from high-frequency EMF or RF fields; low-frequency electrical fields may be reduced by grounding. Results are not guaranteed.

Step 2: Painting

When applying the paint to a wall; it must cover all of the exposed areas. The paint is applied the same as any regular paint and you can be use a regular paint tray, roller and brush. When painting around electrical outlets leave about 2 inches around each outlet. The Yshield Paint is conductive and needs to be kept away from any electrical wires.

One coat of YShield paint will provide about 37dB attenuation; a second coat will provide slightly better shielding (about 44dB) and so on.We recommend a minimum of two coats, three is better.

Let the Yshield Paint dry for 24 hours to effectively at blocking EMF/RF radiation after drying.

Step 3: Grounding/EMF Shielding

Please use an Interior Grounding Kit - GS2. for each wall that is being painted (8 X8 surface area).

The grounding plate MUST installed by a licensed electrician.

Always check your space for EMF leaks with a Safe and Sound Pro II RF Meter.
