Protect yourself with the Drape Armour™ shielding that’s right for you. Drape Armour is now available in LOW conﬁgurations that answer a spectrum of needs. Offering both greater economy combined with effective protection from scatter radiation, you can now choose the Drape Armour shielding that’s ideal for you.
Material samples for tests are prepared by cutting out small 2 1/2” circular discs of Drape Armour™ material and evaluated by comparing the fractional amounts of radiation transmitted through each sample and varying thickness of lead. The source of radiation is a diagnostic X-ray tube energized by a high frequency generator. The fractional amounts of transmitted radiation are recorded using both film and an ionization chamber. Both the accelerating potential and X-ray beam half-value layers are actively monitored to maintain precise consistency between samples and test sessions. The amount of exposure is adjusted to yield an optical density within the linear response range of the film. Attenuation measurement tests were performed at a range of 60-120 kVp.
