White Contrast Paint

A bright white, opaque NDT contrast paint, WCP-2 provides a high contrast background to improve probability of detection and sensitivity during visible magnetic particle inspections.

This fast drying paint aerosol sprays on evenly, without flaking, before inspection so when non-florescent / colored magnetic particles are applied, the indications appear clearly against the opaque white background.

WCP-2 can be used with all types of colored and visible mag particles, including 7HF or 7C Black wet method particles, and #2 Yellow or #8A Red dry method magnetic powders.


Maximize indication detection

  • See indications more easily on WCP-2’s bright white, opaque surface which highlights indications while minimizing glare/reflections

Increase inspection speed

  • Speed up inspections by applying a clean coat on the first pass, without bubbles or flakes
  • Dries evenly and quickly to create an optimal surface for faster indication formation
