When Easy-to-Clean, Stain Resistant Radiation Shielding is Needed, Choose PEARLTEX

Whether you work in a hospital, dental practice, cath lab or veterinary office; keeping your medical imaging equipment clean and sanitary is a top concern for all healthcare providers. After a busy day full of seeing patients this can often become a cumbersome task. When it comes to radiation protection for medical imaging XrayCurtains.com has you covered with its new line of easy-to-clean stain resistant radiation shielding, PEARLTEX. 

Easy-to-Clean Shielding

XrayCurtains.com developed the PEARLTEX line of lead-free radiation shielding with ease of use as a priority. Whether you select a PEARLTEX wall- or ceiling-mounted curtain, blanket, or mobile barrier you can be sure that each one is easily safe, effective, and cleanable. Simply wipe it free of any fluids, oils, grease, and other contaminants after each use with detergent, water, or other common healthcare cleanser.

If you are wondering just how simple PEARLTEX radiation shielding is to keep clean, we have had a certified laboratory test some of the most common stains you might see on your medical imaging x-ray curtains on a daily basis. Due to PEARLTEX’s non-porous and water-resistant coating, in most cases you will find that these wipeable x-ray curtains can be easily cleaned in place with standard healthcare chemicals without fear of staining or degrading curtains. This can help put your mind at ease that you are taking the proper steps to keep your radiation shielding properly cleaned in between each patient to prevent potential buildups of bacteria and other disease-causing organisms.  

Proven Stain Resistance

In a medical practice, stains are bound to happen. We have done our best to help medical providers combat the common stains that appear on radiation shielding. PEARLTEX has been tested for stain resistance under CFFA-142. Upon testing all stains were fully removed with standard cleaning methods.  PEARLTEX products did not stain when exposed to fluids, grease, and other contaminants. If any stains are to appear they can be easily detected due to PEARLTEX’s off-white pearl color. If a stain is to appear on your x-ray curtain, it can be wiped clean with any common hospital cleaner.
