medical index VECTOR X the significant advance in flexible radiation protection materials for medical environments
VECTOR X-the single most significant advance in flexible radiation protectionmaterials for medical environments in more than a generation
Independent tests demonstrate that the technical advantages of VECTOR X approach in terms of safety, weight and comfort, enable protective aprons, skirts and accessories to provide up to 20 per cent reduction in absorbed dose than competitors Lead composite materials, and 40% better performance than Lead-free alternatives at comparable LE.
VECTOR X takes advantage of the physics associated with using individual layers of specific materials to provide maximum attenuation by eliminating the effects of fluorescence and secondary scatter radiation with the low atomic weight metals used
in Lead-free or low-Lead composites. Tested and certified for attenuation and Lead equivalence by the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) against a full range of kV (50kV to 150kV) using broad beam geometry, Edge Bilayer performs in accordance
with all major standards, including IEC 61331-1:2014 and the German Standard DIN 6857-1.
No other Lead-free or low-Lead material passes IEC 61331-1:2014,
DIN 6857-1 and ASTM F2547-06 at a lower weight.
1.Passes all major global standards, including the new IEC 61331-1 :2014
2.The only radiation protection core material using true bilayer construction
3.The only Lead-free and low-Lead radiation protection materials designed to
provide increased protection against scatter radiation and absorbed dose
3.Independently certified between 50kV-150kV
4.Soft and subtle while retaining tensile strength of traditional products
Theres a problem with traditional Lead-free and Lead-composite products containing
low atomic weight metals, either exclusively or in a mixed metal composite. Simply
put, they cannot match the performance of traditional Lead products, due to the Kedge effect and resulting fluorescence at key levels of keV. Testing reveals that these materials can only pass previous standards when tested between 80kV and 100kV
using narrow beam geometry. The result? Increased levels of absorbed dose received by the skin and organs that delivers a real, lasting and career-limiting impact on medical professionals. VECTOR X is designed to and for new standards, superior
in concept, design and performance to deliver unparalleled comfort and flexibility. VECTOR X is the most complete and advanced form of radiation protection ever made.
