Whether you’re looking to create a SCIF (sensitive compartmented office facility) in your building or just want to enhance the protection of your digital data from outside threats, there are plenty of ways to do it. These solutions, from RF/IR window films to foils, help enhance electromagnetic shielding and prevent data theft and hacking devices from infiltrating systems.

Another option that makes sense is conductive paint. In this post, we’ll discuss some of the advantages of paint solutions, like EMCoat RF Paint, and how they can help secure office space. Here’s a look at what you need to know:

1. It’s Versatile

One of the biggest advantages of using EMCoat RF Paint is how versatile it is. It can be applied on primed drywall, wood panels, metal, and even concrete surfaces. Following application, you’re able to paint over the conductive coating with standard paint so the RF paint remains discrete and you can style the office environment how you see fit.

2. It Can Go Where Foil Cannot

One key advantage to using conductive paint is that it can be applied to areas that foil cannot. Since paint is porous, it’s easy to fit into the nooks and crannies where it may be difficult to install foil and films.

3. It’s Fast and Easy to Apply

EMCoat RF paint is applied the same way standard paint is – it can be sprayed, brushed or rolled on. EMCoat RF dries just as any conventional paint does, though a full day of curing is often necessary to achieve maximum signal attenuation.

4. It’s Non-Toxic

EMCoat RF is water-based and non-toxic. Because it’s not solvent-based, breathing protection and other PPE isn’t required when applying it. It’s also easy to clean up.

5. It Can Be Layered

Just as an additional coat of conventional paint can further bring out a room’s color, an additional coat of EMCoat RF can provide better overall shielding coverage.

6. It’s Cost Effective

A gallon of EMCoat RF can cover up to 140 square feet, allowing for cost-effective coverage.

7. It’s Made in the USA

Last but not least, EMCoat EF is manufactured in the United States. In addition to the product being made under quality standards that can be trusted, you can also rest assured that it follows safe labor laws.
