With regard to OPTIBELT standard-lead qualities, the portion of lead has been reduced and replaced by other suitable metals with low specific weights. Reduction of weight whilst retaining the identical shielding effect is quite significant. 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 its unmatched flexibility – the key word here is 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.
