In this study, tungsten, bismuth and barium sulphate coated 100% cotton fabrics, which can be used for personal x-ray shielding purposes, were tested in terms of their sewability properties. By doing so, the sewing parameters that would not impair the sewing process and that would not cause or elevate damage on the coated fabrics were determined.
