X-ray protection grades in the brand optibeltELASTOMIT have proved themselves on the market as reliable radiation protection up to 150 kV. Customers can choose from standard lead, lead-reduced and lead-free grades. The materials are based on a vulcanised rubber matrix which provides excellent flexibility and minimal residual deformation under mechanical stress.
The cross-linking principle that takes place during the vulcanisation process reduces the plasticiser content and minimises odour. The wide-ranging applications include medicine and veterinary medicine, such as aprons, and X-ray apparatus engineering in the form of X-ray protection curtains.
To ensure sustainability and allow valuable raw materials (metals) to be recovered, X-ray protection material can be heat recycled.
