Electromagnetic interference pollution can be considered one of the big issues because it may interrupt, shield or otherwise degrade the effective performance of the circuit. These effects can range from a simple degradation of data to a total loss of data. Due to this matter, nickel ferrite (Nixfe2O4) utilized as a pigment in paint technology. Nickel ferrite (Nixfe2O4) is prepared by using sol-gel method which is combination of iron III nitrate and nickel nitrate. The characteristic of Nickel ferrite (Nixfe2O4) pigment was analysed using scanning electron microscope and x-ray diffraction. The results shows that the best ratio of paint component for nickel ferrite paint is 27.03% for pigment, 40.54% for binder, 27.03% for solvent and 5.40% for additives. Apart from that, Nickel ferrite (Nixfe2O4) as a pigment was mixed with paint component such as binder, solvent and additive to produced a paint. Furthermore, the properties of paint was undergone five tests namely gloss meter, tape adhesion test, viscometer, pH meter and pencil hardness test. Nickel ferrite (Nixfe2O4) also through electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding analysis and the results shows it is good reflection and low transmission at 50 MHz frequency.
