D.P. Test Chemicals

About this item

Dye Penetrant inspection is used to locate grinding cracks, welding cracks, fatigue cracks, shrinkage blow - holes, seams, laps, pores, sold, shuts, porosity etc. and at the same time it is a non destructive testing method.

There are three chemical is been used for dye penetrant inspection:
(1) CLEANER                    AAM- 151

(2) DYE PENETRANT      AAM -  152  
(3) DEVELOPER                AAM - 153

Inspection Procedure:

  • Make the surface free from grease, oil and rust or any other foreign particles of the flow detection.
  • Remove the Rust by wire brushing and then clean with the cleaner (AAM - 151)
  • Then the Scale by wire brushing and then clean with the cleaner (AAM - 151)
  • Then after spray or brush / dip Dye Penetrant(AAM -152) on the article and allow it to remain for a period called PENETRATION TIME which varies for material and type of defect.
  • The excess of Penetrant should be removed from the surface by using cleaner (AAM - 151) and then after spraying of Developer (AAM - 153) gives visible pinkish indication of defects.
