With proper maintenance our aprons should last for many years. They will require cleaning, handling and storing in an appropriate manner.
Aprons should be cleaned immediately after each use, with care taken to remove all traces of blood, barium or other contaminating substances. For PVC and PU covered aprons we recommend the use of a strong detergent.
Inadequate cleaning will shorten the useful protective life of the apron.
Under no circumstances should our aprons be immersed in any liquid or subjected to cleaning with solvent based or abrasive materials.
Aprons should always be stored on an appropriate hanger or rack, both of which we can supply and may be found in the Accessories section.
Improper storage will shorten the useful protective life of the apron.
We recommend that each apron be subjected to checking by Fluoroscope at least once every six months to ensure no internal damage has been caused to the lead vinyl material. Aprons should also be regularly checked for visible signs of wear.
