Lead Based Products contains lead and should be disposed of through hazardous waste procedures in accordance with local laws and regulations. The material should not be disposed of by incineration and if material catches fire in any way, please ensure that you are using a self-containing breathing apparatus.
Zero Lead is a lead-free material that is not “cross-linked” (or “cured”) and is therefore fully recyclable, and thermally re-processable, or may be disposed of as a non-hazardous, non-toxic waste, in municipal landfills.

This is a sterilized product and expiration is set at 3 years from manufactured date per FDA requirement. his Indication may be found on the label on the original external packaging and indicates the period of time during which the device, sterilized with Ethylene Oxide, may be used as long as it has been stored properly in suitable conditions and has intact packaging.
To protect the user’s arms from scattered secondary radiation originating from the X-ray beam during fluoroscopic procedures by providing an attenuating barrier to radiation. They are not intended for use in direct or primary X-ray beams. They are also not intended to protect from abrasions, cuts, tears, punctures, and heat/fire. The RR sleeves are ideal where the user needs protection from ionizing radiation during various types of procedures such as General X-Ray & Fluoroscopy, Radiography, Neuroradiology, Urology, MRI, CT, Radiotherapy and Nuclear Medicine.
The RR Sleeve is intended to be used in conjunction with radiation attenuating gloves.
