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.

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.

Three 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.

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.

0,50 mmPb 6,00 kg/m² >99 % 99 % 97 % 95 %

Leadfree Radiation Protection Material

Our new, lead-free X-ray protection material has a similar outstanding rating with regard to weight and radiation protection as the well-known NovaLite®. The Leadfree material is also optimized to meet the work-related physiological requirements of workplaces with long wearing times for protective clothing.

 

  • Lead-free protective material
  • Two-layer structure to prevent fluorescense radiation
  • Compliant with standards: IEC 61331-1:2014 / DIN EN 61331-1:2016
  • Tested radiation protection in the X-ray tube voltage range of 50 – 110 kV
  • Two-layer structure to prevent fluorescense radiation
  • A test certificate for lead equivalent determination is available and can be provided if required

ComforTex HPMF®, ComforTex HPMF® Hybrid and ComforTex® HPMF Plus - High Performance 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.

 

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.

 

ComforTex® HPMF Plus with new Design Patterns

Our children’s design «Happy» as well as the design pattern «Nautilus»* are both exclusively available in the outer material variant of ComforTex® HPMF Plus:

In the Plus material, the side in contact with the body is still manufactured with ComforTex® HPMF, so the usual level of wearer comfort is maintained. At the same time, the surface on the outside of the protective clothing shows significantly improved hygiene and cleaning properties thanks to the special coatings. For this reason, our Plus material is particularly suitable in areas with high fluid volumes.
