Liquid Penetrant Inspection (Pt)

This involves applying a liquid dye to the surface of a material and leaving the dye to “dwell” on the surface for a predetermined period of time. The liquid can be either a color that is easily visible under normal lighting conditions or a yellow/green fluorescent colour that requires special lighting conditions to be seen effectively.

This liquid dye enters into discontinuities that are open to the surface of the material through a phenomenon called “capillary action”. This capillary action takes place throughout the dwell time and the discontinuity retains this dye when the excess dye is cleaned from the surface. A type of developer is then.
