I got this question from a friend and don't know how to advise him. 

He added, "All I know so far is that I need a paint with no metals in it. I also know that most white bases have a whole lot of zinc."

Furuno advises: " Yes, it is okay to paint your radar antenna.  However, the paint MUST be epoxy-based with NO metallic ingredients. Paint with metallic ingredients will cause poor performance and possibly damage to your radar."

But when I look at the SDS sheets for Petit EasyPoxy, it's darn hard to know which ingrediants qualify as "metallic".

My friend is looking for a white paint that won't cause trouble, by the way.
