Xenolite™ – Lightweight Radiation Protection Garments

Xenolite™ is a unique polymer based composite material developed by DuPont specially designed to offer full radiation protection with up to 30% reduction in weight.

Xenolite™ greatly relieves back and shoulder stress when radiation protective garments must be worn for long periods of time. Very flexible and durable, with styles that offer maximum support at various stress points, Xenolite™ garments are the ultimate in comfortable wear.

Xenolite™ is the most environmentally friendly protective material available, because it is 100% recyclable, removing disposal problems.
