OPTIBELT standard X-ray protection grades are made from a compound of lead and rubber (rubber basis). The protective lead is mixed into a special rubber matrix form. They are also available as a single-coat material and in various equivalent Pb values ranging from 0.125 mm–1.00 mm Pb (according to national and international X-ray standards). The films can be produced according to customer needs with fabric inserts and coatings as well as covering layers.
Advantages of the rubber basis have to do with high levels of elongation and tensile strength, a low level of permanent stretch as well as unmatched flexibility – the key word wear comfort.
With reference to our consciousness regarding safety, 100% of all X-ray protection films with a Pb equivalent value of up to 0.35 mm Pb are additionally tested for flaws by means of a hi-scan X-ray tunnel machine.
