Protection Levels

Xenolite Strata+ (Lead free)
Xenolite NL garments are made from lead-free, super-lightweight 2-element bilayer composite. Xenolite Strata+ is recyclable and safe for non-hazardous disposal. Lead-vinyl is 25% heavier.

Standard medical x-ray protection levels available include 0.70, 0.50, 0.35 and 0.25 mm Pb.

Front/back protection is usually in the following combinations: 0.50/0.35, 0.50/0.25, 0.35/0.35, 0.35/0.25 & 0.25/0.25. Please contact your medical physics department for advice on local requirements.

Worldwide, the minimum protection for medical use is 0.25 mm Pb.

In Europe and other countries adopting IEC 61331-3:2014, the “light-duty” is 0.25 mm Pb, “heavy-duty” minimum 0.35 mm Pb (front).
