About testing labs for your dye penetrant inspection

Woman checks material in test bench

Dye penetrant testing, also known as fluorescent penetrant testing, is a form of crack testing in which testing labs use a coloured test liquid to visualise cracks on the surface of the test object. For this purpose, a material-compatible liquid test medium is first applied to the test object and penetrates through cracks into its surface. After a defined exposure time, the surface is then cleaned and a further test medium, called developer, is applied. After the contact time of the latter has passed, cracks are clearly visible in colour. An important test standard for dye penetrant testing is DIN EN ISO 3452-1 (Non-destructive testing - Penetrant testing - Part 1: General principles). Especially in the case of certain automotive and aircraft components, test labs frequently use penetrant testing.
