High Performance Radiation Protection

The quality demands for X-ray protective clothing are now greater than ever.
Wearing times of the protective clothing are extended by modern, radiologically
supported procedures in diagnostics and treatment. The protection requirements
differ depending on the intended use.

Information about the absorption values
of MAVIG X-ray protective clothing for
different lead equivalents as well as for
both MAVIG materials “pure lead”
“lead composite” can also be found in

our flyer “Radiation Absorption”.

Also available in: French, and Chinese

Our well-thought out product line allows us to offer you the technically mature
and wide range of models that you can expect from us as an international
market leader in the field of radiation protection.


Two different protective materials are used to attenuate X-radiation.
Each of the materials is optimally adapted to the required radiation
protection at a minimum weight.


Standard Lead Radiation Protective Material

With our standard lead material on a natural rubber base, we have maintained
our leading position as a manufacturer of X-ray protective clothing for years.

This high quality and flexible material offers you protection against radiation
in accordance with IEC 61331-1:2014 / DIN EN 61331-1:2016 over the entire
X-ray tube voltage range from 50 – 150 kV. Therefore, it is also suitable e.g.
for CT applications.

  • Material on a natural rubber base
  • X-ray protection according to IEC 61331-1:2014 / DIN EN 61331-1:2016
  • Recommended / suitable for CT applications / in nuclear medicine
  • X-ray tube voltage range from 50 – 150 kV


Degree of Protection (and area weight) of MAVIG standard lead

NovaLite® Radiation Protective Material

This first-class radiation protective material achieves outstanding results
in terms of weight orientation and radiation protection properties.

The NovaLite generation ensures that basic requirements of occupational
physiology are met, especially in workplaces where X-ray protective clothing
has to be worn for long periods of time.

And of course, here too: Radiation protection tested in accordance with
IEC 61331-1:2014 / DIN EN 61331-1:2016  in the X-ray tube voltage
range of 50 – 110 kV.

  • Weight optimized and thereby lighter than standard lead
  • Lead reduced X-ray protective material
  • X-ray protection according to IEC 61331-1:2014 / DIN EN 61331-1:2016
  • X-ray tube voltage range from 50 – 110 kV


Degree of Protection (and area weight) of MAVIG NovaLite® 0.25, 0.35, and 0.50

Lead Equivalent
Area Weight
50 kV 70 kV 90 kV 110 kV
0.25 mmPb (3.0 – 3.3 kg/m²) 99 % 96 % 92 % 87 %
0.35 mmPb (4.3 – 4.9 kg/m²) > 99 % 98 % 95 % 91 %
0.50 mmPb (6.0 – 6.6 kg/m²) > 99 % 99 % 97 % 95 %



ComforTex HPMF® and ComforTex HPMF® Hybrid
by MAVIG – High Performance Outer Materials

In clinics hygienic demands are constantly growing.
This means the requirements for X-ray protective clothing are also
increasing, especially with regard to their resistance to chemicals.

Protection of Staff and Patients From Health Risks

The special properties of both of our materials provide a high degree
of barrier protection, which prevents the penetration of infectious
pathogens and their carrier media such as liquids and solid particles.

The development of MAVIG‘s innovative textiles has led to the
following list of basic performance requirements:

  • High Barrier Function
  • Absolute Cleanliness
  • Low Particle Release
  • Material Strength


ComforTex® HPMF Hybrid – A Reliable Outer Material With an Optimised Coating

The hybrid version of our ComforTex HPMF for X-ray protective clothing
was developed in order to best meet your daily working needs. With our
ComforTex HPMF Hybrid, we combine maximum comfort for the wearer
with optimum hygiene and cleaning properties.

In order to maintain our exceptional level of wearer comfort, the side
facing your body is still manufactured with ComforTex HPMF. At the
same time, thanks to the new special coating of the hybrid material,
the exterior surface has clearly improved hygiene and cleaning properties.
For this reason, our hybrid material is particularly suitable in areas
with high fluid volumes.

It goes without saying that ComforTex HPMF Hybrid, like a high
performance surgical textile, also fulfils the relevant requirements
in accordance with DIN EN 13795:2013. This series of standards
regulates important and sensible safety requirements for the quality
of surgical textiles that is necessary in order to protect patients and
staff from infections. Just like our basic material ComforTex HPMF,
the innovative ComforTex HPMF Hybrid offers safety and protection
against electrostatic charges which can affect the proper function
of sensitive medical devices.

From now on all aprons, costumes, and coats for medical personnel,
as well as the thyroid protector (RA) are available with our new
ComforTex HPMF Hybrid material.

A fresh look, a pleasant feel and comfort for the wearer are the
first impressions of the current X-ray protection collection by MAVIG.


The following colours are available for our ComforTex HPMF Hybrid:






Indian Summer

Please note that for
technical reasons,
the colours in the photos
may differ from the original
colours of the products.



ComforTex® HPMF Robustness, Protection, and Safety

Whether as the base material for our hybrid variant or as the entire
surface of your X-ray protective clothing, our tried and tested
ComforTex HPMF will, of course, remain the same.

ComforTex HPMF still fulfils all relevant requirements in accordance
with DIN EN 13795:2013 and offers you maximum wearing comfort
during the working day.


Flexible Comfort for Users and Best Workmanship

Smoothness and flexibility are special features of MAVIG X-ray
protective clothing. To further optimise wearing comfort for the user,
special attention is paid to superior cuts and excellent workmanship.
Quality Made in Germany


Through extensive research and testing, we ensure a healthy work
environment for the users of our products, which are largely
harmless in environmental and toxicological terms.

This is achieved by the careful selection of the materials, as well as
our suppliers, and strict controls in the production process.
