    Protection Information

    There is very little change in the protecting capability of the three apron inner material protection options at the Kvp ranges of 75 - 100. A difference does exists, however, in the lower Kvp ranges of 30 - 45. These lower ranges are the most damaging to the human body and this little known fact is why you should choose Protech Medical. We are dedicated to premium quality products that will keep you safe.

    Note - Attenuation measurements based on 100 Kvp for Protech aprons.

    • Leaded equivalent protection of .5mm thickness attenuates 98% direct beam.
    • Lead equivalent protection of .35mm thickness attenuates 96% direct beam.
    • Lead or non lead equivalent protection of .25mm thickness attenuates 92% direct beam.
