FIRST Malaysia Lead Apron Brand
LEAD LIGHT APRON – LIGHT WEIGHT
LEAD LIGHT MATERIALS
The Lead Light is a kind of flexible and lighter lead protective products, which can be used to make all kinds of X-ray protection products such as protective apron, cap and screen barrier, etc.
Lead is the best radiation shielding material in the world. Having very evenly distribution of lead, the performance of the protection is perfect. Under the normal use, the lead equivalent will not attenuate. It is wearable X-ray protective materials, lead equivalent rubber sheet.
DEFAULT FABRIC USE:
210D Oxford Nylon Fabric
Nylon 420D Oxford fabric 86T±2T 124g/m2 with single layer PU Coating 15g/m2 base

LEAD LIGHT SHIELDING LEAD EQUIVALENT
Lead Light apron is made of lead oxide and other composites dissolved in natural rubber, produce a homogeneous sheet that is excellent in radiation protection, flexible, long lasting, and resistant to hardening. The special composites produce a protective apron that is lighter than those fabricated with last decade technology. Lead Light apron absorb up to 99% of scattered radiation that reaches protected object, and the stated lead equivalency are verified by facility with require test method comply with Standard IEC-EN 61331-01. The inner core material is certified to be in compliance, within an allowed +/-5% manufacturing tolerance (as mm Pb).
It is to take note that in general, lead Light aprons absorb more radiation energy than the lead-free apron due to the excellent attenuation capability of lead.
LEAD FREE APRON
We carry protective apron in lead-free model, to suffice customers that willing to pay more for lighter apparels. All lead-free material technologies are origin from United State and tested according to the IEC61331-2:2014 standards.
The stated lead equivalency protection of lead-free garments is measured under direct beam conditions at 100 kV (beam HVL 7mm AL) using the required test method of Standard IEC-EN 61331-01. The inner core material is certified to be in compliance, within an allowed +/-7% manufacturing tolerance (as mm Pb). The actual amount of x-radiation transmitted through the garment will vary with lead equivalence, beam kV, beam filtration (HVL), and in absolute “exposure values” with distance from the beam/table and exposed time.
LEAD LIGHT OR LEAD-FREE APRON?
Below is a comparison of Malray’s lead light and lead-free apron in various aspects, to help the user in determination of type of apron to be used.
Most Economical and Recyclable
Lead fibre and composites in natural rubber
0.5mm Pb Equiv. protection average 98% attenuation over 80, 100, 120 KVp
4.4 kg (Flexi Guard, Size L, 0.5mmPb front protection apron
No Lead (Lead Free)
Lightest weight, lead free, environment friendly
0.5mm Pb Equiv. protection average 96% attenuation over 80, 100, 120 KVp
4.2 kg (Flexi Guard, Size L, 0.5mmPb
- Lead free apron is slightly lighter than lead light apron. Under the same lead equivalency and same cut, the different is around 10 – 30%
- Lead light apron offers better and consistent radiation shielding to the protected target under different tube voltages, compare to lead free apron.
