The new coating technology by NTT creates radiopaque, unleaded and autoclavable products, thanks to the thermosetting matrix. One possible application is radiopaque laminate for X-ray protection.
It is used in protective aprons (www.sox-versus.it) for personnel exposed to X-rays (lead aprons), for patients and for surgeons working in orthopaedics and hemodynamics under X-ray control.
Moreover, it can be used for creating environmental and insulation screening for X-ray equipment.
As for safety, radiopaque laminate can be applied to luggage check devices in airports, harbors and other relevant buildings and as protection for staff.
