Electromagnetic interference (EMI) issue is of concern as it may cause the malfunction of other electrical or electronic devices. Extra protection can be provided not only to the equipment but also to the human inside a building if the shielding capability can be embedded directly into the building material. The inherent shielding of the cement powder is not adequate to eliminate the incoming electromagnetic (EM) field efficiently (less than 2dB from the result of this work). Hence this work is carried out to improve the shielding effectiveness (SE) of cement powder by mixing graphite fine powder as a conductive filler into the cement powder. The increment in the loss factor reflected that the addition of the conductive filler has increased the conductivity of the mixture. The addition of 30 percent of graphite into the cement powder is able to produce 110dB of shielding at 900MHz at 10cm.
