Demron is a radiation-shielding fabric. Weight-for-weight the material has slightly lower radiation protection than lead shielding, however being flexible.[1] It is essentially particles of metal embedded in a polyethylene-based material.[2] The manufacturer claims it's a "liquid metal".[3] It is roughly three to four times more expensive than a conventional lead apron, but can be treated like a normal fabric for cleaning, storage and disposal.[4] More recent uses for Demron include certified first responder hazmat suits as well as tactical vests.
