Water-Based Fluorescent Magnetic Particle Suspension
14A Aqua-Glo is a highly sensitive water-based magnetic particle suspension aerosol for locating very fine discontinuities in critical applications and difficult to reach areas. 14A Aqua-Glo offers the benefits of a water bath and the convenience of an aerosol. It is ideal for spot inspections and difficult to process situations where bulk processing is impractical.
This water-based, non-flammable aerosol contains high-sensitivity 14A fluorescent magnetic particles and is primarily used for field testing with a portable magnetic field generator. 14A Aqua-Glo is ready-to-use, and creates a bright yellow-green fluorescent indication when viewed with ultraviolet light. The ultra-sensitive particles provide clear, bright, fluorescent green indications under ultra-violet light for unbeatable inspection quality and accuracy.
14A Aqua-Glo is sprayed onto magnetized parts prior to inspection. It is used to detect cracks and seams, as well as inclusions, laps, tears and flakes. 14A Aqua-Glo can detect flaws that are open to the surface of the part, or slightly sub-surface. Parts tested can be forgings, welds, castings, and stamped or machined ferromagnetic materials, such as steel and other alloys of iron, nickel, and cobalt.
