IEC 61331-1:2014: Now the Official Global Standard for Radiation Protection

IEC 61331-1:2002 will be withdrawn effective June 11,2017

IEC 61331-1:2014 is now the official, recognized standard for radiation protection aprons in Europe.

Lead Equivalency

New Lead Equivalency

The new lead equivalency standard requirements are .25 mm Pb for light duty and .35 mm Pb for heavy duty aprons. This allows for a lighter weight apron that still provides all of the protection required.

New Radiation Testing

New Testing Range

The new testing range is from 50 kVp to 110 kVp. All radiation protection aprons must meet the minimum lead equivalency at each of these kVp ranges.

KIARMOR Lead Material

KIARMOR is the only core material in the world currently certified to the IEC61331-1:2014 standards and the only lead-free core material to pass the stringent DIN standards.

LIghtest Material

Lightest Material

KIARMOR core material is the lightest to pass IEC61331-1:2014. Any like style and size apron that is lighter than an Infab KIARMOR apron does not pass the proper testing.

Certification Claim

Ask for Certification

If any apron manufacturer claims their like style and size apron is lighter, ask for their certification from an accredited testing facility, such as the NPL (National Physics Laboratory).

Radiation Protection

All new Infab aprons are manufactured to the new IEC standards. We have adopted this global standard and are committed to offering you the highest protection levels to keep you safe and prolong your career.
