Advanced ErgoLite® & RayShield®
Advanced X-Ban® is a multi-attenuator composite radiation protection material. This specialized composite material is simply the highest state of the art in x-ray protection and one that continues to evolve to maintain maximum effectiveness. Advanced X-Ban® is unsurpassed. When used in 0.5mm lead equivalence, it's effective radiation attenuation provides 98% attenuation of scattered radiation at 80 KVP, and 94.1% attenuation at 100 KVP. These are independent test results, certified by the National Physics Laboratory to the BS EN 61331-1 International Standard:
Advanced X-Ban® Quality
The formulation of its attenuating materials have evolved to this level, manufactured under unsurpassed quality control conditions. During manufacturing Advanced X-Ban® material is digitally scanned for consistent density. To provide a second test after production each roll of material is sampled and retested. Prior to apron production every yard of this material is sight inspected before it is used to produce your garments.
Advanced RayShield® 0.35mm & 0.5mm Super Lightweight
Advanced X-ban® is offered in four standard protective garment constructions: 0.35mm and 0.5mm SuperLightweight, and 0.35mm and 0.5mm SuperLightweight LeadFREE. Lead Equivalent Protective Aprons are manufactured using Advanced X-Ban®, a special, synthetic composite protective material that offers improved dimensional strength and durability of an advanced polymer material. An advanced metallic deposition technique places lead and multiple attenuating materials in suspension in one homogenous layer of distinct attenuating materials, creating a super light weight optimized protective apron material while averaging a weight improvement that is 30% lighter than conventional lead vinyl aprons. To our knowledge, no apron in the industry is lighter in weight while providing the same radiation protection.
Advanced RayShield® Durability
Manufactured under unsurpassed quality control conditions with 30 years of experience in radiation protection manufacturing, we take tremendous pride in making the best x-ray protective garments in the industry. Our Vermont production team treats every garment they make, "like it was being hand delivered to a neighbor." That's old fashioned quality in an innovative 21st century product. The result is simply the best product available, back by a Lifetime Warranty that nobody else will give you. Ask yourself why?
AADCO Recycling & The Environment
Becuase Lead-Free garments, have "No-Lead" these products may be thrown into regular trash collection. But is this environmentally friendly? If disposed of in regular trash they end up in landfills across the country. The problem is they contain valuable minerals like Bismuth, Antimony and Tungsten. Each time one is disposed of in a landfill, the metallic elements used to produce a new garment must be mined. Mining is environmentally destructive, and Landfill Disposal = More Mining.
THEREFORE, LANDFILL DISPOSAL IS NOT GREEN & NOT ENVIRONMENTALLY SUSTAINABLE
FREE AADCO Recycling
IF RECYCLED, X-ray Protective Garments made with No-Lead and lead provide the best protection for you and our environment. At AADCO, we have a FREE RECYCLING PROGRAM for our customers for all X-ray Protective Garments. It's costly to AADCO, but in terms of providing you with the best x-ray safety, and protecting our environment, IT'S WORTH EVERY PENNY!
ONLY RECYCLING IS GREEN & ENVIRONMENTALLY SUSTAINABLE
AADCO’s "No Inspection Required" Warranty
Many Lead Apron manufactures require that you inspect, i.e., fluorocope your new apron within 7 to 14 days of shipping, making you accept responsibility for any defects that may appear later. That's a no-warranty clause. (read their fine print)
At AADCO, we don't do that... We have a rigorous inspection process that begins in the earliest stages of manufacturing and guarantees a quality product. No inspection by the customer is required.
AADCO Medical, Inc., warrants the X-ray protective wear manufactured under its label to be free of defects in material and workmanship for two years. Repair or replacement will be done at the sole discretion of AADCO Medical, Inc, upon a no-charge basis and subject only to your return shipping the product to AADCO at your cost. This warranty assumes normal wear and tear and does not cover any product which has been abused or misused. This warranty represents the only warranty provided by AADCO Medical, Inc., for its X-ray protective wear. AADCO Medical, Inc., assumes no liability other than that expressly set forth in the foregoing warranty. No other warranty, whether express or implied, is provided. In no case shall the liability of AADCO Medical, Inc., exceed the purchase or replacement price of the product.
- Front Protection Value. In wraparound protective garments back protection equals one half of this amount Note: 0.5mm Lead Equivalent material provides approximately 98% x-ray absorption (attenuation) at 89 KVP and 94.1% x-ray absorption (attenuation) at 100KVP, of scattered radiation. Independently Tested & Certified by the National Physics Laboratory to the BS EN 61331-1 International Standard.
