Z-Band wristbands are considered to be MR-Safe. Z-Band wristbands are made of polypropylene and vinyl. The direct thermal imaging chemistry is composed primarily of leuco dies and developers. The inks / varnishes used are UV varnishes and water-based inks. There is no metal content in or on these particular patient identification bands. Therefore, Z-Band wristbands are considered to be MR-Safe.
1. Following correct application and appropriate dwell time (usually 24hrs) the media will withstand this temperature range.
2. Following correct application and appropriate dwell time (usually 24hrs) we expect, but do not warrant, a life span as indicated.
