optibelt ELASTOMIT-R X-ray protection qualities have proved themselves in the market as reliable and safe protection against X-rays up to 150 kV. In personal X-ray protection, Optibelt quality is used in X-ray aprons. Customers can choose from standard lead, ultra-light lead and lead-free grades. All qualities are based on a vulcanised rubber matrix.
Reliable and safe protection against X-rays
optibelt ELASTOMIT-R STANDARD
optibelt ELASTOMIT-R standard X-ray protection grades are made from a combination of lead and rubber (with a rubber base). The protective lead is added to a special form of rubber matrix.
optibelt ELASTOMIT-R LEAD-REDUCED
In these rubber-based grades, the lead content is reduced and replaced by other suitable materials with a low specific gravity. Remarkably, the same shielding effect is achieved even though the weight has been reduced.
optibelt ELASTOMIT-R LEAD-FREE
The lead-free grades are based on a rubber compound and do not contain any lead. The lead was completely replaced with other suitable metals with a similar specific weight. An identical shielding effect is obtained as a result.
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 sheets can be produced to customers' requirements with fabric inserts and covers as well as different covering layers.
All optibelt ELASTOMIT X-ray protection qualities without a fabric inlay up to a Pb equivalent of 0.35 mm Pb are 100% checked for defects during the production process using a Hi-Scan continuous X-ray system in order to guarantee maximum quality and safety.
