QuestionI'm worried about Lead-Free aprons not providing protection. What are they made of if they are not lead? 

Answer: To address your concerns, there are several elements that protect you from radiation.  Lead is the most common because it also the cheapest protective element.  Among the others is tin.  Tin protects just as well as lead, and is MUCH LIGHTER, but it is also much more expensive.  Most companies that offer lead-free protection use tin.  The key point to remember isn't "what" is protecting you, but "how" the attenuation factor compares on the lead-equivalency chart.  Tin will give the same lead-equivalency rating of attenuation as lead.  So, rest assured, whether it's lead, lightweight lead, or lead-free, all styles of our aprons offer you excellent levels of lead-equivalent protection.
