Your lead apron is a vital part of your protection against the hazardous effects of ionizing radiation. It’s essential to clean it properly using a lead apron cleaner. Barrier Technologies® has specially formulated our Secure Shield X-Ray Apron Cleaning Wipes to gently, but effectively clean your apron to remove any contamination and extend its lifespan.
If you work in a busy radiological environment, your x-ray apron collects grime, blood, other bodily fluids, barium spills, etc. These render it unsanitary, making it an ideal breeding ground for pathogens. Highly contagious bacteria, molds, and viruses pose a danger to your health and those around you.
Barrier Technologies’ sanitizing Secure Shield X-Ray Apron Cleaning Wipes are the easiest, quickest way to clean your lead apron when you’re on the go:
All our products are the result of extensive research. We are specialists in radiation protective gear and our wipes are made with due consideration to protecting that gear. They won’t damage the fabric covers or react with the lead lining, unlike many other cleaners.
You can rest assured that the cleaning and sanitizing agent we use in our wipes are both safe and highly effective. Keep one of our handy dispensers nearby to swiftly take care of any dirt, stains, or contaminants on your x-ray lead apron.
Although you should use our wipes for instant cleaning when accidents happen, we recommend that you clean your X-ray apron daily. Research shows that occasional wiping isn’t enough to remove the biofilm that develops over time. This invisible layer of gunk comprises bacterial colonies and other biomatter. Approximately 80% of chronic infections in health facilities are biofilm-related.
Thoroughly inspecting and cleaning your apron is a simple process that will be time well spent to ensure that your apron is undamaged, disinfected, and safe to use.
The following table summarizes the pros and cons of x-ray apron cleaning wipes:

Although our x-ray apron cleaning wipes are excellent for cleaning and sanitizing your lead apron, porous nylon fabric covers stain easily and are difficult to clean. This greatly increases the risk of Hospital Acquired Infection (HAI). If you are looking to replace your apron, try one of our new generation options covered with UltraFlex™ antibacterial, stain-resistant medical-grade urethane-coated fabric that shrugs off fluids and is comfortable to wear.
If you’re a dentist looking to protect your patients, we have a revolutionary option for you: The MagnaGuard Velcro-Free Dental X-ray Apron. Don’t forget to use our Secure Shield wipes for daily wipe downs.
