What You Should Know About Anti Radiation Paint

Anti radiation paints are potentially beneficial in many ways to your health. One example of that is they’re a low VOC paint. A study was conducted on participants who worked six days in an environmentally-controlled office space at the TIEQ lab, which is located at the Syracuse Center of Excellence. The VOC levels in the room were 50 micrograms per cubic meter and 40 cubic feet per minute of outdoor air. The result showed that cognitive scores on average were 101% higher than in conventional workspaces. Here’s what else you should know about anti radiation paint.

How does shielding paint work?

It’s quite unique what this paint is able to do. EMR shielding paints are designed to absorb electromagnetic field in the environment. All of our devices — such as our phones, TVs, and laptops — emit radiation. These paints help to protect you from all of the radiation in your home. Anti radiation paints will usually offer high frequency protection. This means they’ll continue to be effective in protecting you against radiation as technology gets more advanced.

What other devices emit radiation?

Besides the usual suspects of phones, laptops, and TVs, many other devices in your home give off radiation. These include radios, irons, microwaves, refrigerators, dishwashers, and washing machines. Anti radiation paints, therefore, would be useful to apply in all areas of your home. These paints are particularly useful for workplaces such as nuclear power plants, hospitals, and military facilities.

What are the effects of radiation?

The main effect most people are aware of with radiation is the increased risk of cancer. But there are more ways that radiation can affect you. For example, in the short term, it’s believed to cause stress, ringing in the ears, tiredness, and headaches. Over a long period of time, it could lead to memory impairment, permanent hearing impairment, heart disease, increased risk of brain tumor, and many other serious ailments.

How do you apply anti radiation paint?

The paint should be applied as one or two layers, depending on the amount of shielding you want. It can be used on both the walls and the ceiling. The paint should be allowed to dry for at least 24 hours. After that, you’ll have to use grounding equipment. Keep in mind that sometimes grounding equipment is used before the paint is applied. Instructions will vary depending on what grounding equipment you use.

How long do anti radiation paints last?

You have to store them properly in order to maximize shelf life. Unopened and undamaged paint can survive up to 24 months. This paint should not be stored in temperatures lower than 41 degrees or higher than 95 degrees Fahrenheit.

Is anti radiation paint non-toxic?

Yes, anti radiation paint is non-toxic. There are also versions of it sold that are zero odor as well. In addition, as mentioned earlier, it is also a low VOC paint. That means that, in addition to protecting you from radiation, these paints will eliminate the harmful effects associated with volatile organic compounds.
