    What is the best shielding material to use Copper,Brass or the paint on type. Some even say liquard electrical tape. Any advise would be welcome.:meh:
     
  2. Sticky copper foil: easy to find, good shielding properties, maybe a little fiddly to apply.
     
  3. I've had good results with the paint on material. Don't use liquid electrical tape. It creates insulation, for shielding you want something that conducts electricity like copper or the metal in the shielding paint.

    Silver would be the "best" ;)

    Application is more important. Those three materials are all good.
