In Brazil, the increasing reliance on X-ray diagnostics and therapeutics emphasizes the necessity of wearing a lead apron. This upswing in the use of ionizing radiation in medical and industrial settings comes with an increasing risk of exposure. Potential hazards include cellular and genetic damage that can cause cancer and other life-changing diseases.

In healthcare, high-quality radioprotective garments comprise a primary safety measure for radiologic professionals and their patients during procedures such as radiography, CT scans, and fluoroscopy. Barrier Technologies® manufactures innovative radiation protection solutions that comply with Brazil’s stringent safety standards, ensuring optimal protection for those working with X-rays.

Barrier Technologies’ Medical Aprons

Globally renowned Barrier Technologies’ X-ray aprons are the ultimate defense against scatter radiation. Our dedicated team consistently develops innovative materials and components to improve protection, comfort, and durability.

Highlighted below are three key features of our premium medical aprons:

1. Proprietary Core Materials: Our standard X-ray lead aprons offer lead equivalence (LE) of 0.35 or 0.5 mm Pb. We also fabricate lightweight tungsten apron options for comparable protection without toxic lead and its onerous disposal protocols.

2. Ergonomic Designs: Experience optimal comfort and flexibility during extended wear. By distributing weight evenly, our aprons minimize fatigue and musculoskeletal pain. Ingenious unisex designs with fully adjustable inserts and straps suit all body types.

3. Tailored Customization and Personalization: Elevate your professional aesthetic with our range of fabric choices, colors, and patterns. Add that personal touch by incorporating an embroidered logo or design, allowing you to express your individual style or promote your brand effectively.

High-Quality Radiology X-Ray Aprons in Brazil

Barrier Technologies presents our Brazilian clientele with a meticulously selected assortment of radiology aprons, focussing on cutting-edge features, heightened protective qualities, and swift availability.

UltraFlex™ Antibacterial Aprons

Do you struggle to remove unhygienic stains and splashes from your lead apron? Regular porous nylon covering fabric is notorious for harboring hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) such as MRSA. Barrier Technologies’ exclusive, easy-to-clean UltraFlex fabric ensures that dangerous pathogens can’t get a foothold.

  • The impervious medical-grade urethane coating shrugs off liquids.
  • Antimicrobial additives prevent biofilm build-up and cross-contamination.
  • It conforms to COVID-19 personal protection protocols.
  • A quick wipe-down with any hospital-grade disinfectant between procedures maintains sterility.
  • Comfortable four-way stretch fabric allows unrestricted mobility and flexibility.


MagnaGuard™ Magnetic Closures

Say goodbye to troublesome Velcro fasteners that snag your hair and clothes and gather embedded dirt and debris. Barrier Technologies patented magnetic closure system comprises permanent strip magnets integrated into the core material.

  • Merely touch the two halves of the closure together for a secure, snug fit.
  • No finicky parts or stitching—the closure is totally invisible.
  • The magnets will never lose their grip or need replacing.
  • The smooth, uninterrupted surface facilitates easy cleaning.
  • Donning and doffing are accomplished easily with one hand.
