    Any suggestions on a paint that can be used on antennas that will not interfere with RF?

    A low VOC paint is manufactured by Sherwin Williams: Polane HS Plus Polyurethane Enamel. They recommend that catalyst V66V55 be used with this paint. The paint you choose cannot contain metallic particles, high levels of carbon, or conductive dyes such as SW?s silver paint which contains metallic particles.

    RF shielding paints used in rooms to prevent cell tower usage have high levels of carbon, silver, copper and nickel.
