What about Lead Material? • Traditional lead rubber sheeting has been used for over 60 years for making protection apparel. • Even in the 21st century, Lead continues to be an excellent x-ray protection material. • It is particularly useful in procedures that last a short period e.g. for a conventional xray.

@^#$& my back!

Why Light Lead? Long hours of wearing a heavier apron particularly during surgeries and in cath lab leads to discomfort, pain, and risk of back problems. Lightweight aprons reduce the load on the back and provide relief.

Why is Light Lead lighter than Lead? Certain elements of the periodic table have good x-ray blocking properties similar to that of Lead e.g. Tin, Antimony, Bismuth, Tungsten. An optimum combination of several such elements in a mixture with pure lead powder results in approximate 30% lower weight compared to conventional lead sheeting.

Why do we need No Lead? Lead is toxic, carcinogenic, and harmful to the environment. The need is for a radiation protective material that is as light as light lead, but not an environmental hazard.
