X-Ray attenuation of cotton fabrics coated with barium sulphate
The x-ray attenuation performance of barium sulphate coated cotton fabrics was evaluated. 10-50 wt% barium sulphate/binder mixture was prepared and then coated onto cotton fabrics. For x-ray shielding evaluation, the fabrics with the different layers were tested under the x-ray radiation at 50kV-100 kV energy levels. The results showed that the shielding x-ray radiation were in the range of 1.48-77%, indicating that x-ray attenuation significantly increased with an increase in BaSO4 content. In addition, the number of fabric layers also played an important role. Finally, it was found that BaSO4 coated cotton fabrics exhibited satisfactory durability with respect to rubbing and washing tests.
